Paring Chardonnay wine with Adore, it’s a peach pie. Sedona Pies use Chardonnay with most of their seasonal fruits, like peaches and nectarines.
They are closer to a white or blush fruit. The Chardonnays due to their oak flavors, will hold the flavor through the baking process.
75% of all spirits burn off in the baking process. Sorry for those who think they’ll get drunk eating a slice of pie. The wine for me enhances the fruit pies for an overall taste of freshness. It just brings it together for a memorable taste.
I have named all the pies with their own names – Nectarine pie is called “I’m Sexy.” read more.
A peach pie is called “Adore.”
Plus each pie is graded like a bottle of wine. Adore or I’m Sexy sweetness level is between #2-3. This means no sugar is added, just the natural sweetness of the fruit, then add the Chardonnay.
About Chardonnay wines:
The most prominent flavor in Chardonnay wine comes from oak used in the wine production process. Other flavors and aromas include fruit, lemon, melon, grass, and vanilla. Some other characteristics of Chardonnay wines are high acidity, golden colors, and a velvety feel in the mouth.
Oaked Chardonnays are rich, full-bodied and have additional flavors of vanilla, butter and even caramel from the oak. A cool climate, buttery Chardonnay will have more citrus flavors versus a warm climate Chardonnay, which will have more tropical fruit flavors
Both Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are made in a variety of styles, and both can be made into anything from a crisp, dry white to a sweet late-harvest-style dessert wine. You could find examples of Sauvignon Blanc sweeter than a Chardonnay, and you could find examples of the reverse, too.
Grown in California’s cool coastal vineyards. Monterey County provides citrus and lime flavors. Santa Barbara County imparts mango and pineapple flavors. Mendocino County imparts green apple notes. Sonoma County adds ripe pear flavors.
