Erie Shore Vineyard 2020 Chardonnay Oak Fermented

Oaked Chardonnay is a classic wine, but unlike the typical oaked Chardonnay this wine was fermented in oak instead of aged in French oak. The result is a wine with a complex melody of flavours and aromas. The floral notes intermingle with oaky flavours so well that you cannot tell where one ends and another begins. With hints of honey and vanilla it is smooth on the palate.

This wine pairs best with a lighter dish that will not overpower it, such as a salad with vinaigrette, fish, chicken but can also nicely compliment roast beef.

Harvest Nachos with Squash, Brussels Sprouts & Smoked Cheddar

Harvest Nachos finds crunchy tortilla chips baked under a bed of two cheeses, roasted fall veggies, dried cranberries and fresh thyme. If you cut the vegetables and grate the cheeses ahead of time, the whole dish comes together in under an hour. It is important to layer nachos so the last bite is as good as the first.

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 450°F (230°F).
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine squash, Brussels sprouts, oil, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly and transfer to a heavy-duty baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake on lower rack, stirring twice, until browned and soft, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven.
  • Lower temperature to 350°F (180°F).
  • While the vegetables are roasting, whisk vinegar, water, sugar and a pinch of salt in small bowl until sugar is dissolved. Stir in shallot. Set aside, stirring occasionally.
  • Line a heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spread out half the chips and sprinkle with half the cheese, half of the roasted vegetables, cranberries and thyme. Repeat with a second layer using up remaining half of chips, cheese and toppings. Bake until cheeses are melted and nachos are hot, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven. Drain shallots and sprinkle over nachos. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.
