Weekend Wine and Food Pairing – Halibut Sandwiches and Unoaked Chardonnay

Last weekend, we stopped by a restaurant in Laguna Beach for lunch and ordered halibut sandwiches.  My husband and I frequent this restaurant because they never have a corkage fee (which is a rarity in OC!).  We toted along a bottle of unoaked Chardonnay we picked up last year.  To our palates’ delight, the wine was great and the paring was even better!

If you haven’t enjoyed an Unoaked Chardonnay, you are missing out.  Forget the thick, buttery Chardonnay you are used to and open up your glass to bright, refreshing flavors.  Look for a bottle with citrus and tropical notes to pair with the halibut.  The combination is mouth-watering and delicious!
