What food pairs well with Chardonnay
Chardonnay is undoubtedly the most famous white grape in the world. When it is grown in the right conditions (similar to those found in Burgundy) it has the ability to produce the most exquisitely textured wines in the world. Chardonnay is a neutral grape variety, so it is usually oaked. However in the Chablis region the unique soil imbues the wines with a flinty, creamy character with notes of apple and citrus. With high acidity, creamy texture and restrained fruit flavours this style is one of the most versatile food wines working beautifully with shellfish, fish, pork, chicken and creamy cheeses. It is also a great choice with Chinese dishes.
