Chardonel – May 2018 Wine of the Month

Wine of the Month – Chardonel, 3 for $39

Chardonel is a hybrid grape developed by Cornel University and is a combination of the American hybrid Seyval and French Chardonnay.   It is a rich, fruit-forward wine with a smooth butter finish.

This dry and refreshing white wine exhibits a complex set of aromas and flavors –vanilla, pineapple, lime, cedar, pear, and green apple.

Similar in style to its parent grape, Chardonnay.

Best when served chilled and pairs well with white creamy cheeses, pasta with cream sauces and pesto.

It also compliments basil, rosemary, and mushrooms.  Chardonel goes wonderfully with grilled chicken, sea bass and trout.

Almonds, apples, vanilla cake and banana bread make for delightful snacks to accompany this very popular wine.
