Healthy Summer Grilling: Simple Spinach and Feta Turkey Burger with Argento 2014 Chardonnay

Spinach and feta is one of my favorite combinations – in fact, when I first started cooking, spinach and feta chicken sandwiches were one of my go-to recipes of choice.  And in the summer time we love burgers, so I knew that there was no better combination in a lean turkey burger than spinach and feta.

Last week, I shared a recipe for Mahi Mahi Tacos, that I paired with Argento 2014 Pinot Grigio.  In addition to the Pinot Grigio, I was given a fruity Argento 2014 Reserva Chardonnay to try.  After tasting the Reserva Chardonnay, the acidity and slight creaminess made me think of feta cheese.  Feta cheese immediately brought the spinach and chicken sandwiches to mind, and then with the thought of summer – turkey burgers!  And I tell you what, I am glad I thought of this, because these burgers, and this Reserva Chardonnay taste great together!  All recipes and opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way.

Argento 2014 Reserva Chardonnay tastes summery.  It is light, and has subtle hints of mango and orange with a creamy finish.  This wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks, and then finished in oak for the vanilla notes and luxurious and round lingering finish.  

Like the Pinot Grigio we tried last week, this Reserva Chardonnay comes with a screw-top cap making it a perfect to toss in the cooler at a summer backyard bbq!
