Chardonnay can have many flavors. Some of the most common flavors are buttery, mineral, fruit, and oak flavors. Depending on the aging process and the location the vino was made, it can have any combination of these flavors.

One of my favorite things to pair it with is some tasty cheese. The best cheeses to go with a glass of this wine are a mild cheddar or provolone.

If you are looking to pair your wine with dinner then you should stick with light colored dishes like chicken breast, shrimp, pork, and salmon.

Also, adding a white cream sauce with your chicken or pork really pairs perfectly.

You can also match up this white with sides or appetizers. The best matches are oysters, clams, and crab cakes. As you can see white wine pairs well with chicken and seafood.

Now moving on to dessert! Many people buy fruity whites specifically for dessert, but I think Chardonnay works well as both a dessert and a dinner wine. It pairs great with fresh fruit. Some of my favorites are pineapple and melon.

Any dish that is made with a red sauce or red meat should be paired with a red. The different flavors of white wine and red meats/sauces don’t pair well together.

Although red vino is supposed to be served just under room temperature, you will want to keep your Chardonnay a bit cooler around 54-56 degrees F. Many people over-cool their vino and end up losing a lot of the flavor.
