Grilled Shrimp Skewers with Romesco Sauce

June 23, 2022

This mouthwatering dish is the perfect compliment to our Estate Chardonnay, and to summertime festivities.

“The Chalk Hill Estate Chardonnay to me is elegant and balanced with some brighter apple and Asian pear notes. It’s quite nice and crisp, which I love with grilled shrimp skewers and romesco sauce. The clean meatiness of the shrimp really complements the acidic notes, while the smoky and creamy romesco balances nicely with the slight toasted oak notes”.
