An Aussie Chardonnay Good with a Chicken and Chorizo Paella

We had a Chicken Paella from Best Chicken Recipes.  It also contained Chorizo, Red Peppers, Tomatoes and Turmeric.  This was a tasty but not a particularly strongly flavoured dish and we opened a bottle of Croftwood Chardonnay 2009, an Australian white from the Sunday Times Wine Club. We last drank this with a Salmon and Prawn Chowder (see 1 Sept 2011).  The peach and melon flavours in the wine came though well again and there was a pleasant tangy finish.  A good match with the Paella.
