Mango Salsa Recipe + Pinot Gris

Our 90-point (PDF) 2020 Pinot Gris dazzles with an incredible quality to price ratio at a happy $14 a pop. Built on 100% Pinot Gris, this medium-bodied white wine struts in from the Yakima Valley (fun fact Yakima Valley was Washington’s first designated AVA established almost 30 years ago) with sassy citrus aromas, food-friendly acidity, and a just-say-summer bright, crisp finish. Zero oak influence, gentle pressing and cool fermentation methods mean that we really shine the proverbial spotlight on this classic cool climate Columbia Valley grape.

Perfect to sip solo, but also incredibly versatile with food, our Nine Hats Pinot Gris doubles up well with the likes of seafood from shellfish to grilled fish. However, it can also dance with the savory profiles of Latin American foodie favorites. Think classic Cuban black beans and rice, or the Cubano, a traditional Cuban sandwich made with the staples of ham, cheese, pickles and a dollop of mustard. Fried Bananas? Amazing and simple, the lively acidity of our Yakima Valley Pinot Gris cuts right through the fat to reveal a dazzling synergy of sweet meets heat as the concentrated banana sugars swirl to the beat of the wine’s remarkable tropical notes. Want to keep it simple, give it a go with chips and salsa. The festive flavors of mango salsa leap forward with the complementary fruit character and dash of minerality found in the 2020 Pinot Grigio.

Mango Salsa is one of the easiest salsas to throw together. With just a few simple ingredients and about 5-10 minutes of prep time (depending on how good you are peeling and cutting mangoes) you'll get a crowd-pleasing app.

Ingredients (double for a bigger group)

  • Two ripe mangoes, chopped
  • One bunch cilantro, chopped
  • One or two Jalapeño peppers
  • Small red onion, chopped (if you have a big one, use about half)
  • Lime juice (we used one lime but add more for flavor)

All you really need to do is chop all of the ingredients (except for the lime, of course) and then squeeze lime juice in. Mix it together and serve it with your favorite tortilla chips.
