Recipe pairing

Creamy Chicken Tagliatelle

Rich, cheesy, oh-so-delicious, this Creamy Chicken Tagliatelle with fried sage and walnuts is the ultimate comfort dish. It’s an ideal match to our Chardonnay with its touch of buttery oak and vibrant notes of stone fruits, citrus, and fig.

Dynamic

Marlborough

The climate is predominantly dry and sunny, influenced by coastal breezes and winds, the Chardonnay produced displays subtle more lemon/lime and white stonefruit flavors, with mineral notes imparted by the stony, alluvial soils vines are grown in.
