I returned home from an amazing trip to Kenya and have a ton of pictures to sort though. Our friends and family have been asking to see them, but I don’t just want to swipe through them on my phone. Instead, I’m hosting a small viewing party.

For the menu I’m serving Tapas and wine. The Tapas I’m serving are a mix of cold and hot snacks chosen to pair perfectly with these Notable wines.

I bought the both the Notable’s Oaky & Buttery Chardonnay and Notable’s Fruity & Crisp Chardonnay from Kroger to pair with my Tapas. The menu is a mix of store bought snacks and home made. The Notable wines launched in March 2017 and have two flavor profiles.

The Notable’s Oaky & Buttery Chardonnay has hints of butter, oak and vanilla. Those flavors are smooth and light so I paired them with four savory and flavorful Tapas. My guest will be able to enjoy this flavor profile with spicy shrimp, Wasabi Seaweed Chips, Garlic Herb Mushrooms and marinated olives.Wine Tasting and Tapas Viewing Party

The Notable’s Fruity & Crisp Chardonnay is refreshingly crisp with hints of citrus, melon and peach. That flavor profile is like a party in the mouth so I wanted some fun Tapas to pair with it. I decided on sweet California Rolls, Salami and Provolone rolls with baguette.
