Cheddar Cups with Fresh Tomato Relish & Crispy Pancetta
WITH GRANGE OF PRINCE EDWARD GAMAY NOIR VQA
Why choose this particular Gamay Noir to go with an appetizer (recipe on page 156) that features sweet, tangy, fresh Ontario tomatoes at the peak of their season? Gamay was one of the original three varieties Caroline Granger planted at her winery in the heart of Prince Edward County, back in 2001. Today, the vines are thoroughly mature and the wine they produce has its own lively acidity and bright cherry and red berry flavours, with a beguiling hint of spice. It all adds up to a great match for the tomatoes, and a lovely contrast with the rich, cheesy pastry cups.
