Rich, fresh, sweet and savory, pair this chowder with your best Chardonnay
Savvy match: The delicate flavor of crab and velvety richness of the heavy cream in the thick corn chowder benefit from a full-bodied wine to accent the crab and offer enough acidity to balance the rich ingredients. Go to your best Chardonnay wines for a memorable feast.
This corn chowder is rich and fresh and sweet and savory; you’ll need a wine that is all those things. A perfect pairing for this chowder is Chardonnay. The combination of creamy corn and crab sing when conveyed by this luscious grape. I can’t think of many better pairings than this one. Pair with an unoaked Chardonnay if that is your preference, but if you are a fan of those somewhat “larger than life” California Chardonnays, this dish will hold up to any you throw at it.
