While on dining assignments, I often challenge beverage pairings. Like a pearl imbeds in an oyster, sometimes these suggestions stick to the menu. Just in time for America’s Cup racing in San Francisco, I decided to make waves at Waterbar.
Santa Barbara County winemaker Deborah Hall followed a series of cryptic historical clues--quill-scrawled letters, a frayed 18th century tome, and a modern-day DNA sample--to find treasure in the Sta. Rita Hills.
Crisp and fresh, with aromas of lemon grass, grapefruit, tropical notes and briny minerals. Refreshing palate, offering lemon/lime, green apple, and tangerine. Clean finish, with a touch of limestone on the end. Good house pour and BTG choice.
