We’ve been waiting to release a Chardonnay/Pinot Noir for many years. The wait has been worth it. This is in the style of the popular blend hailing from a prominent producer… however… by sourcing Pinot from a famous MCC producer, and then adding boutique Chardonnay from Darling to add serious complexity; this wine drinks better (our opinion), but costs the same. A BMW for Chevy prices. Naturally lower alcohol makes this a perfect lunchtime quaffer or all-day delight.

This is a simple yet delicious dish that is sure to impress, but will leave you plenty of time to enjoy the wine instead of slaving in the kitchen. Chef Craig Cormack developed this recipe to work seamlessly with the Woodward Ridge Chardonnay-Pinot Noir. Craig says “The fresh acidity of this wine works well with the oiliness of the fish, and the added twist of Pinot Noir in the blend compliments the earthiness of the peas extremely well”. We love: Looks and tastes exotic, but it’s deceptively simple. The pairing itself is a match made in heaven. Alternative pairings: Try this recipe with a focus on Pinot Noir and go with the Radford Dale Freedom (served slightly chilled).   Catchpole & Co.
