Chardonnay food pairing
Chardonnay is always made dry and is medium or full bodied. Depending on the amount of oak, chardonnay ranges from fruity to buttery. In the Hunter Valley chardonnays are ripe, often displaying melon and nutty characters too. Chardonnays are versatile for food pairing, matching seafoods, soft cheese, creamy dishes, vegetables and white meats very well. Given that Hunter Chardonnays have good body, pairing with red meats and red pasta sauces also works well. We find chardonnay an excellent wine to use when cooking a bolognese sauce - it adds rich flavour whilst not making the sauce too heavy or too dark.
