Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Muscadet, Riesling
Chardonnay, Muscadet, and Riesling are my top picks 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 Lapis Luna Chardonnay with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 13 dollars per bottle.
Lapis Luna ChardonnayOrange zest, ripe pineapple, toast, and vanilla on the nose. Full-bodied, fresh and lively, with lush white peach and ripe apple flavors leading to a savory buttered finish.
