Pinot Grigio Wine

This Swordfish with Crushed Olives recipe combines the clean taste of the swordfish with the brine of the olives and citrus from the lemon. This dish pairs great with a Pinot Grigio. A Pinot Grigio is also a medium to full-bodied wine, with a rather low acidity and fairly neutral aromas.
