Wine & Food Pairing

The 2008 Wyatt Chardonnay is a pale greenish-yellow with clear edges. The nose of the Wyatt Chardonnay is clean with distinct notes of pear, melon, and other tropical fruits. This Chardonnay is a dry, full-bodied wine with crisp acidity and moderate flavor intensity. For a Chardonnay that isn't oaked at all it's hard to avoid the impression that it still tastes a little oaky, but that's countered a bit by the mineral flavors.

Appellation: 20% Monterey County, 35% from Yolo County, 45% Mendocino County

Food Pairing

Pairing Wyatt Chardonnay 2008 with Cheeses

  • Cheddar Cheese (aged 3 years): When paired with aged cheddar cheese, the 2008 Wyatt Chardonnay becomes both sweeter and tarter as well as more fruity and more aromatic. I think that sour, tart apples is the strongest impression that I get here. It's difficult to describe everything that's going on with this combination, but it's definitely a pairing that's worth trying.
  • Aged Gouda: The Wyatt Chardonnay becomes more buttery and smoother when paired with aged Gouda, making this also a good combination to try.

Pairing Wyatt Chardonnay 2008 with Main Dishes

  • Shrimp Scampi: This Chardonnay becomes sweeter, fruitier, and more aromatic when paired with shrimp scampi. This is a recommended pairing and it would probably be worth trying the 2008 Wyatt Chardonnay with other dishes that are dominated by buttery and/or garlic.

Wyatt Chardonnay

The Wyatt Chardonnay is a decent white wine, not the best Chardonnay I've had but it is good when paired with foods like aged cheeses and buttery dishes.
