Brandborg Rose' of Pinot Noir

Last night we had a meal of grill Portabellos with balsamic, green spices, crumbled blu cheese, zucchini brushed with oil and Turkish spices, and various slaw. I, as the resident meat eater, had chicken thighs slow cooked in Pear and Ginger Chutney.
Pairing such a diverse meal would see to be a match for anyone but we had opened a bottle of the '13 Rose of Pinot Noir by Brandborg Winery the night before for a nightcap so we poured it and were so pleased that we open another bottle. We finished with ripe strawberries and it was the perfect match!
The Rose' has enough complexity that it stand well against the balsamic and spice of the vegetables and mushrooms and it enhances the pear and ginger on the chicken. Wonderful choice!
