Winemaking Notes I make this style with the thought of coming home from work, putting your feet up, and relaxing with a refreshing glass of Chardonnay in hand. I keep it fruit forward and clean. The barrels are only used to round the wine and add just a touch of richness. Food Pairing This Chardonnay is quite versatile. It would pair nicely with spicier fare such as pumpkin curry with chicken as well as lighter seafood dishes.
