Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Gruener Veltliner, Muscadet, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Sparkling Wine

Crawfish on the menu? Try pairing with Chardonnay, Gruener Veltliner, and Muscadet. Though different seafoods can certainly call for different wines, generally a crisp, light-bodied white wine or a sparkling white wine will do the trick and not drown out any subtle flavors. You could try Antica Chardonnay (Mountain Select). Reviewers quite like it with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 29 dollars per bottle.

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.
