Wine Pairings

Curried chicken sandwich. Pair it with: A crowd-pleasing chardonnay.
Exploding with ripe peaches and seductive vanilla spice, this chardonnay complements the curry and mango in the salad. It’s not as heavy as a typical chardonnay, but the flavour is still full and rich.
Our pick: Ghost Pines Winemaker’s Blend Chardonnay, California, $20.
