Let’s just get this out of the way right now: as it stands, Pinot Gris/Grigio doesn’t have a particularly great reputation
in the states. It’s easy to find in stores, and most of what we get our hands on (both domestic and imported) is less
than inspiring. That “meh” response to Pinot Gris is why I’m super eager to show off this particular wine by
Indigené Cellars, as it has the vibrancy and minerality that many of its contemporaries seem to lack. Winemaker
Raymond Smith has crafted a wine with notes of lemongrass, fresh Granny Smith apples, and a deceptively long
finish. Made with grapes sourced entirely from organic vineyards, the Indigené Pinot Gris was aged in terra cotta
vessels, which is just cool as hell. Personally, I’d pair this with sushi, but probably not any of the insanely complex
rolls that are pretty common nowadays. As fun and tasty as they are, I’d stick with some simple rolls, or even
sashimi—perhaps yellowtail or true tuna (interesting fish fact: “yellowtail tuna” isn’t actually tuna, it’s a separate
species known as “amberjack”). You can find Indigené tucked into the coolest, tiniest spot in Paso—hidden in
Norma’s Alley between 12th and 13th.
