On July 1, Canadians across the country will be celebrating Canada Day! Poutine and butter tarts are two classic Canadian dishes that are likely to make an appearance on any dinner table and we wanted to share two Chardonnay pairings for your readers to try on the long weekend!
Made up of crispy french fries, cheese curds and loads of gravy, poutine is the quintessential Canadian dish. Savoury and cheesy, poutine can be paired with Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay. This approachable wine with subtle hints of oak is known for its incredible pairing abilities and will add a refreshing contrast to the buttery poutine.

90 points, Wine Enthusiast: “This wine interlaces a lightbuttery-oak nuance with vibrant, appealing fruit flavors. It’s medium weight yet fresh, with a smooth, well-balanced palate that displays a harmonized mix of savory oak and citrus nuances.” (May 2019)
Butter tarts are easily the most popular (and delicious) Canadian dessert! Sweet and caramel-y, the tart’s flavours will be amplified by La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. La Crema’s rich texture, subtle oak and spice aromas compliment the sweetness of the tart. Bonus, this wine pairs well with almost any dinner course lasting into the dessert!
