An Unoaked Australian Chardonnay is Very Good with a Chicken Fricassée

We tried Old-Fashioned Chicken Fricassée from Best Ever Chicken Recipes. A fricassée is a classic dish where poultry is first seared in fat, then braised.  This recipe includes white wine, chicken stock, bouquet garni, mushrooms, lemon juice, onions and is finished with a little cream. We served it with duchess potatoes and asparagus.    .

Creamy chicken dishes scream for a Chardonnay and we opened a bottle of Steve’s Block Unoaked Chardonnay 2011, an Australian white from the Sunday Times Wine Club.

The flavours were of tropical fruits and the wine was creamy, yet clean and fresh with citrus andIMG_0568 apples.  This lovely intensely flavoured wine was a very good match with the meal.
