Dungeness Crab and Chardonnay: A marriage of food and wine

There are just some things in nature that are made for each other. One of those “perfect pairings” is Fresh Dungeness Crab and well made California Chardonnay. As the first boatloads of fresh, sweet crab meat arrive at our stores, we are ready to pair it with two of our favorite Chardonnays: Edna Valley Vineyard Chardonnay and Hahn SLH Chardonnay.


Edna Valley Vineyard Chardonnay
This popular Chardonnay comes from the Edna Valley in San Luis Obispo County. The wine is characterized by an attractive bouquet of quince, pear, ripe apple, apricot and light pineapple, with undertones of brown spice notes of cinnamon and clove. A fresh mouthfeel with hints of vanilla and a bright acidity combine to form a long, pleasing finish in this medium-bodied wine.

Hahn SLH Chardonnay
The SLH stands for Santa Lucia Highlands and the Hahn Family is a pioneer in this exclusive growing area of Monterey County. This wine was harvested by hand from the Hahn Family’s Lone Oak vineyard, which is known for its cool, foggy growing conditions that allow the grapes to ripen slowly and develop layers of flavor in the finished wine. Whole cluster pressed, barrel fermented in French oak, and aged on its lees for eight months, the result is aromas of baked apple and lemongrass, underscored by tropical fruit notes of pineapple and lychee. A broad, silky mouthfeel carries through the finish of butter toffee and vanilla. This is what we call our “Perfect Pairing” for your fresh Dungeness crab.
