A white wine that is characterized by many different flavor profiles, Chardonnay is made from green-skinned grapes. It was first produced in the Burgundy wine region of eastern France but is now grown all over the world.
A medium to light-bodied wine, Chardonnay can have flavors ranging from apple and pear to citrus to tropical fruit to oaky to buttery – or any combination thereof.
Pair Chardonnay with:
Cheese: Mild cheddar and gruyere.
Seafood: Oysters, stuffed clams, salty smoked salmon.
Cream Sauce: Anything with cream sauce!
Fruit: Anything tropical, such as mango or pineapple.
But you don’t want to pair Chardonnay with tomato sauce. The acidity of tomatoes doesn’t match well with the buttery wine. It’s also too light to work well with steak.
