Shafer Red Shoulder Ranch 2018 Chardonnay is a dry and full-bodied Chardonnay produced from grapes sourced from the Carneros wine region. Fragrant with white florals and ripe pear, smooth and sultry with layers of ripe tropical fruit, stone fruit, ripe apple, cinnamon, nutmeg and toasty oak spice on the palate. Pour with roast chicken.

Chardonnay food pairings: crab cakes, Cornish hen, pan-fried cod with lemon butter sauce.
