Wine Education with Ross

Ross Bouchard, General Manager

Ross, General ManagerWine Words:

Typicity – is a term in wine tasting used to describe the degree to which a wine reflects its varietal origins and demonstrates the signature characteristics of the grape used to produce the wine.

Typicity relies on both historical precedent and a sentiment of what the present-day majority view how a certain variety should “taste”.

Light Cream Cheese – 2 oz

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 

Mix cooked pasta, marinara, 1/4 cup water, cream cheese, 1/4 tsp. salt, to taste, and a pinch of pepper in parchment paper lined casserole dish. Top with tomatoes and onions.  Dry shrimp and place on pasta in a single layer.  Bake uncovered in the oven for 35 minutes.  Mix well, then cover with foil to rest for 5 minutes.  Top pasta with parmesan cheese, crushed croutons, and red pepper flakes and serve with our Solstice White; unoaked chardonnay.  

Pairs with “Solstice White” – unoaked Chardonnay.  The semi sweetness perfectly offsets the spiciness of the red pepper flakes while the acidity compliments the tomatoes and weight of the chardonnay pairs well with the pasta and shrimp.

Enjoy!
