Honey Lime Marinated Shrimp and Unoaked Chardonnay Pairing Notes
Description: "Unoaked" means that the wine has been fermented and/or aged in stainless steel tanks, allowing the pure fruit flavours of the grapes to come through. This unoaked Chardonnay has crisp fruit flavours of peach, apple, and pear. It is medium in body and has refreshing, tangy acidity.
Pairing: This dish has many flavours - sweet honey, tangy lime, and a bit of spice from chili. The wine matches perfectly because it has enough body to stand up to all of these flavours and the texture of the shrimp. The fruity flavours complement the sweet honey and cool the heat of the chili, and the acidity balances the citrusy lime flavour.
Wine Suggestion: Try an Unoaked Chardonnay from Australia or Canada.
