Wine 101: Chardonnay

Chardonnay (pronounced Shar-don-nay) is America's number one selling dry white wine.

Chardonnay is a green skinned grape variety believed to have originated in the Burgundy wine region of France but is now grown worldwide. It is used to make champagne and white Burgundy.

According to wine.com, Chardonnay varies greatly depending on climate, soil and winemaking. Cooler climates like New Zealand lead to crisp, acid prone wines, and warmer climates like Southern California and Australia produce a riper grape that create heavier wine leaning towards tropical fruit flavors.

Food and Wine recommends the wines of Burgundy with roasted chicken or seafood; and the "New World Chardonnays" pair well with pasta dishes made with cream or cheese, with lobster or other rich seafood and with Asian dishes that include coconut milk.
