Alaskan Halibut in season now until November is a thicker firmer fish that handles well on the grill, oven, or in a pan. Halibut is the bone-in ribeye of whitefish and can be devoured with fresh herbs, spring veggies, and well-balanced sauces.
Halibut pairs well with Round Pond Estate, Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley, 2014 $12/48 The intense nose is full of fresh fruit and white flowers. Clean and bright, it highlights notes of crane melon, white peach and pineapple. The entry is lush and driven by stonefruit with an emphasis on apricot and Asian plum. Followed by lemon meringue and golden kiwi, the mid-palate exhibits richness and more depths of flavor. This crisp wine is beautifully balanced and finishes with mouthwatering acidity and minerality, along with lingering tropical fruit.
