Sens Sips

Two Wine Cups

Chardonnay

California, USA
Burgundy, France

Look for Chardonnay that offers nice stone fruits and enough fruit sweetness to stand up with the starchy and sweet pumpkin. This is a heavier salad, so an oaked chardonnay will offer plenty of texture and creaminess (aka 'butter') and complement the dish nicely.
