A to Z Pinot Noir review: Which food pairs well with it?
A to Z Pinot Noir is a very versatile wine when it comes down to food pairings.
We find it pairs well with earthy flavors.
Classic appetizers are mushroom pizza, mushroom agnolotti, and caramelized cauliflower to name some.
Being a light Pinot Noir it pairs well with grilled fish like grilled salmon and swordfish.
Meat wise you have a wide selection here from duck, roasted chicken, pork, rabbit, and beef bourguignon for example.
If you are a cheese lover our recommendations for you are Taleggio (wash-rind), Comte, Cheddar (semi-hard) or Pecorino (hard).
A to Z Pinot Noir review: What's its alcohol content?
A to Z Pinot Noir wine’s alcohol content is 13.5%.
In case you wonder about alcohol content or more precisely Alcohol By Volume, i.e. ABV, measure the alcoholic strength of a drink.
There is a direct relationship between the sugar left in the wine after the alcoholic fermentation has taken place, i.e. Residual Sugar or RS, and ABV.
During alcoholic fermentation, the yeast transforms the sugar in the grape juice into alcohol.
Grapes with high residual sugar will therefore produce dry wine with a high ABV.
How many calories are in a glass of A to Z Pinot Noir wine?
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture  a 5-ounce glass will contain about 120 to 130 calories.
Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram. So a wine with high ABV will have a higher calories per glass than a wine with low ABV.
Furthermore, sugar contributes to the calorie count.
A dry wine will usually have 4 calories per grams vs a sweet wine that will have around 20 calories per grams of carbs, which include sugar.
What is A to Z Wineworks?
Here is an extract from the A to Z Wineworks website itself:
“Why we became a B Corp
“We have always tried to model best practices and be a best partner in all of our dealings.
As we continue to grow economically, we can also now through B Lab measure our improvement in environmental and social practices.
The bigger we get, the more good we can do, the more opportunities for our employees, and the more visibility for our model.
We hope to inspire businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world but to be the best for the world.””
This is a light and refreshing Pinot Noir that’s priced around $20. It’s not the cheapest bottle of this kind around if you ask me.
Black and red fruit along with mocha, chocolate, and an earthy finish will complement many dishes from veggie, pasta, a vast variety of red meats, and our beloved cheeses.
Try it with caramelized cauliflower, grilled salmon, or Cheddar cheese and it’ll be a delight. At least it was for me!
