Chardonnay Food Matching
Chardonnay has made a real comeback recently, which is a wonderful to see as Chardonnay is such a complex wine and can be enjoyed with a range of foods. Understanding where the Chardonnay is from, weather it is oaked and how mature it is when you drink it is important to which food you pair it with. Anderson Hill Chardonnays are cool climate, stored in oak for twelve months and as it ages develops different more complex flavours.
A younger cool climate chardonnay such as Anderson Hill "Lila Agars" pairs well with shellfish such as crab and prawns, especially our famous prawn pizza, delicate chicken terrines, creamy pastas, risottos and fresh spring vegetables.
An aged Chardonnay such as Anderson Hill "Elizabeth Scott" pair well slightly richer foods like veal with mushroom sauce, pumpkin ravioli, hazelnut crusted chicken with fennel and of course a local Udder Delights Cheddar.
