Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Muscadet, Riesling
Chardonnay, Muscadet, and Riesling are great choices for Shellfish. Buttery chardonnay is great for scallops, shrimp, crab, and lobster, while muscadet is a classic pick for mussels, oysters, and clams. If you've got some spice in your shellfish, a semi-dry riesling can balance out the heat. The Antica Chardonnay (Mountain Select) with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 29 dollars per bottle.
Antica Chardonnay (Mountain Select)The 2017 Chardonnay is vibrant and rich with enticing aromas that lead to a firm core of pear, apple and apricot flavors shaded by lightly-spiced oak. On the palate, the wine offers layer upon layer of lingering flavors. The wine highlights varietal purity with elegance and freshness on the palate.The Chardonnay was picked from 4 to 31-year-old vinesfrom select portions of nine vineyard blocks, which areplanted at an elevation of 1,413-1,494 feet. This year’s selection comprised of 10 Chardonnay clones—nine Burgundian and the acclaimed Heritage Weimer Selection—that together create the complexity in aromatics andflavors we seek for our Mountain Select Chardonnay.
