What Goes With What Wines Selections
Domaine Matrot Bourgogne Chardonnay ’06, France (Chardonnay)
Perhaps I could send a bottle of this wine to California Chardonnay vintners so as to establish what a “little oak” tastes like. This is a simple Chard from Burgundy but tastes like a lot more with a ripe melon flavor followed by a bit of a mineral and a hint of lemon, nicely balanced and lovely with the shrimp. R 88 $14.99
Tapestry Home Vineyards (unoaked) Chardonnay ’07 McLaren Vale, Australia (Chardonnay)
It’s definitely the unoaked nature of the wine that makes the match here, most other Aussie or American Chardonnay in this price range would be over the top. This wine has a silkiness and style that really comes together with all of the flavors in the dish, helped by fresh fruit, good balance and a medium finish. R 88 $10.99
