Shrimp and wine: Shrimp nigiri
The wine: Pinot Gris
Pairing hint: Apple and aromatic stone fruit in the wine are perfect links to sweet shrimp, with a hit of citrus serving as a spritz of lemon.
Our pick: Morgan 2009 R&D Franscioni Vineyard Pinot Gris (Santa Lucia Highlands; $17). Layers of citrus, Asian pear, tart apple, and crisp white peach.
