International Chardonnay Day
We're celebrating with our refreshing and fruity Chardonnay! Our Chardonnay is the perfect refresher with fruity aromas of pineapple, peach, and citrus alongside hints of hazelnut from its time in the barrel. We love how versatile this wine is — it stands perfectly on its own, but it also makes a delicious cocktail. Here are some of our favorite ways to enjoy Chardonnay.
On its Own
Sometimes you just have to keep it simple and pour yourself a drink at the end of the day. Chardonnay doesn’t need a sidekick to be enjoyed; it has a fresh finish with fruit notes of pineapple, citrus, and peaches. Don’t forget its soft hints of vanilla. This complex, medium-bodied wine has good balance and fresh acidity with a stone fruit-focused finish. Bring a bottle over to your friend’s house, or enjoy a glass on the deck!
Paired With Light Meals
Chardonnay plays well with others and can be perfectly paired with light meals, such as chicken or fish. Fire up the grill for some zesty, juicy chicken, or prepare a fresh Ahi Tuna Ceviche to serve alongside your Chardonnay. You can also try it with fresh shellfish, such as lobster and crab, sautéed scallops, or creamy pasta dishes.
If you’re looking for an easy meal or appetizer, try drinking your Chardonnay alongside brie. Chardonnay comes alive when paired with a triple cream brie You can also consider more widely available cheeses, such as Cheddar and Monterey Jack, to pair with Chardonnay. Your palate will not be disappointed!
