Wine Pairings

HOISIN CHICKEN | rich Gamay
This fruity, dry Niagara red perfectly suits an Asian-influenced chicken. The beguiling nose of plums, cherries and strawberries turns into tart forest berries on the tongue. Deliciously juicy, it’s everything that a gorgeous gamay should be.
Malivoire Gamay, Ontario, $18.
