Match #2: A Soft But Weighty White
A heftier white with fruit and a hint of oak can handle both the turkey’s roasted flavor and the rich pan gravy.
ZEROING IN Although Chilean chardonnays aren’t as popular as their oak-laden California cousins, they’re gaining popularity. With layers of apple, pear, and lemon, they’re a terrific choice (and value) compared to pricier white Burgundies and other big, buttery, food-clobbering wines.
