Spicy orange chicken complimented by a lovely Frontenac Gris from Chateau St Croix (St Croix Falls, WI).
Rich gold in color with powerful aromas of pineapple, bitter orange, ripe apricot and musk, with an equally strong palate matching the nose. The searing acidity in this Frontenac Gris was well balanced by its semi-sweetness. A strong wine to compliment a strong dish!
