Pinot Grigio Wine

This Crawfish Monica recipe has nice spice from the crawfish, and it pairs great with a Pinot Grigio. The lime and lemon notes of the wine tone it down a bit and compliment the dish. A Pinot Grigio is also a medium to full-bodied wine, with a rather low acidity and fairly neutral aromas. Follow the link to our wine review site to find our favorite Pinot Grigio wines-
