Clarified Butter

Oh Canada! Two classic Canadian dishes that pair perfectly with a glass of Chardonnay

This weekend, people across the country will be celebrating their Canadian pride! Two classic Canadian dishes, poutine and butter tarts are likely to make an appearance on the dinner table this long weekend, and we have two refreshing Chardonnay recommendations that pair perfectly with them!

Crispy french fries, cheese curds and loads of gravy, poutine is the quintessential Canadian dish. Cheesy and savoury poutine pairs beautifully with Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay. Creamy and round with notes of tropical fruits and subtle hints of oak, this wine adds a refreshing contrast to each bite of this rich dish.

Butter Tarts

Butter tarts are easily the most popular (and delicious) Canadian dessert! Sweet and caramel-y, the tart’s flavours will be amplified by La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. Subtle hints of citrus and spice aromas balance out the sweetness of the tart. Bonus, this wine pairs well with almost any dinner course lasting into the dessert!
