Shellfish on the menu? Try pairing with Chardonnay, Muscadet, and Riesling. 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 Tenuta di Nozzole Le Bruniche Chardonnay with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 12 dollars per bottle.
Tenuta di Nozzole Le Bruniche ChardonnayNozzole Le Bruniche is an elegant and distinctive expression of the Chardonnay variety, with a clean, fragrant bouquet of white and tropical fruits offset by slight nuances of toast. On the palate, it shows a superb balance of fruit ripeness underscored by a fresh acidity and structure of medium body, with an overall impression of delicate complexity. These are repeated in the clean, persistent finish, which ends on a subtle toasty note.
