Made from the hybrid Chardonel grape, it is a combination of the American hybrid Seyval and French Chardonnay. Chardonel is a rich, fruit-foward wine with low acidity. This dry and refreshing white wine exhibits a complex set of flavors-vanilla, pineapple, lime, cedar, pear and green apple. Best when served chilled and pairs well with white creamy cheeses, pasta with cream sauces and pesto, basil, rosemary and mushrooms. Chardonel goes wonderfully with grilled chicken, sea bass and trout.
