Wine Pairing: 2021 Cave Spring Chardonnay

Some of the best wines to pair with a burrata and a pomegranate dish is a nice chardonnay. The light body won’t overpower the delicate flavor of the burrata. The 2021 Chardonnay from Cave Spring Vineyard is medium in body with a supple, orange peel-tinged attack; the mid-palate is rich and extracted, with juicy red apple fruit and the soft grip of yellow-citrus pith layered over a delicate, stoniness; the finish is long, concentrated and unctuous, with succulent orange, cantaloupe, ruby grapefruit flavours and fresh dairy cream overtones, reigned in by a delicate but tense seam of acidity.
