I couldn’t let National Doughnut Day pass without trying my hand at this pairing.
After searching far and wide for doughnuts on the evening of this important national observance, I found some glazed and powdered options at my local grocery store, where I also came across this $5 bottle of Lindeman’s Chardonnay.
The folks over at eatocracy suggest that donuts should be paired with a sweet sparkling wine. For me, that’s sweetness overload, so I went with this mild, very slightly citrus-y Chardonnay from Australia. The pairing wasn’t my favorite, but it worked.
