This recipe was created exclusively to pair with a bottle of 2008 Chardonnay from Medlock Ames. The wine is a good balance between mineral and citrus, with some subtle floral notes. If you think you know what a California Chardonnay is, prepare to be corrected.

For this recipe, we wanted to give the classic cheese and fruit plate a summery twist. A well-executed plate can be such a journey for whatever wine you are enjoying -- you can mix and match fruits, nuts, jams, etc.

We chose grilled fruit for this adventure. It's sweet and toasty, flavors that Medlock Ames' Chardonnay highlights quite well.
