Duckhorn Napa Valle7 Chard 2013 pairing!

ldillma | Jul 27, 201605:15 PM    

A couple of friends gave me a bottle of Duckhorn Napa Valley 2013 Chardonnay as a gift. It's more expensive than the $8-$20 I tend to spend on wine and would like to make a meal that pairs with it beautifully. The Duckhorn site suggests two things that don't appeal at all (because they are sweet, and I'm not a fan sweet stuff, mango salsas, etc), and a paella that involves chorizo. I'd be happy to make paella but don't eat meat. Will the lack of chorizo make a difference?

Also: any other fish/seafood and/or veg pairing suggestions? (And possibly cheese pairing suggestion to start/end?).

Many thanks in advance!
