Best Practices for Chardonnay Wines Food Pairing

Wines and foods both have their own aromas and tastes. Therefore, the pairing of wine and food shall be such that the aroma and taste of wine is not lost in those of foods. Careful wine pairing is done by experts by keeping in view the essential characteristics of both so that the drinkers have the best of both worlds. In this respect, following are some of the best practices for pairing of Chardonnay white wines.

DOs

  • Chardonnay goes well with mild dishes having creamy feel.
  • Meaty and shell fishes, lightly seasoned poultry and pork are other good food items to pair with it
  • Chardonnay with oaky feel is good with toasty flavouring food
  • Chardonnay’s sweetness does well with corn, sweet potatoes, butternut squash. Roaster and grilled foods like roasted chicken also tastes well with the wine.
  • Dishes with smooth texture, such as creamy soups, pastas and sauces are other good items to pair chardonnay wines with.

DON’Ts

  • Do not drink it with aggressively seasoned food. So, a good many Chinese, Indian and Southeast Asian dishes are out of question.
  • Another food item which spoils the Chardonnay wine taste are the bitter foods. These include bitter vegetables and spices. These have the effect of making your favourite chardy taste sour.
  • Foods with high levels of acidity, such as olives, high-acid cheese and raw tomatoes, are a big no to be taken along with chardonnay.
  • If you think that the chardonnays anywhere in the world would taste best when chilled, you cannot be farther from truth. There is a need to keep it away from the ice bucket 15 to 20 minutes before relishing it.

A Guide to Malbec Wines in Australia

Malbec Vines, Club Tapiz

“What is Malbec wine?”
One of the top wines red wines in the present-day American market, Malbec wine is made with grape variety of the same name. The noir (Black) grape is known for its deep, inky colour, strong tannins and a flavour reminiscent to plums. The berries are thin-skinned, and require more sun than other popular varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, or, say Merlot. The wine is made in Argentina, France, and Australia, of course!

Characteristics Of Malbec Wine
1. The full-bodied, dry wine exudes very different, almost contrary characteristics, from the same wine coming from another part of the world. The Argentine version is rich with fruity blackberries, plums and black cherries. French Malbec, on the other hand, is leathery, and the palate reflects black pepper and spice characters, owing to high acidity. The Australian drink depicts fruitiness of Argentine Malbec, complemented by crushed violets, violet crumble and mocha!
2. Regardless of the area, the natural acidity is medium.
3. The tannins are chewy and neatly-framed.
4. All the characters come together to provide a lengthy finish, though described shorter than Cabernet Sauvignon.
5. Interestingly, comparisons are drawn between Malbec and Merlot, with both wines possessing several of the same characteristics, and being easy-to-drink.

“Where do Malbec grapes grow in Australia?”
Fruit for some of the finest Malbec wines in Australia is sourced from vibrant vineyards in McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek and Limestone Coast. In fact, Langhorne Creek is the top Malbec producing area in the country.

“What is the ideal food pairing for a Malbec wine from Australia?”
The aroma and flavour profiles of Australian Malbecs pair nicely with barbecues, particularly beef and lamb with smoky rub. If you are in mood for some curry, a medium-spice one, such as lamb balti is going to be a perfect partner to the drink!

“What are some Australian Malbec wines?”

Experts on Dan Murphy’s wine panel highly rate Mitolo The Nessus Malbec, Bleasdale Second Innings Malbec, McGuigan The Founders Malbec and McGuigan The Plan Malbec. These are probably the most delicious Malbec wines of Australia.
