2 shallots, sliced
3 ears sweet corn, kernels removed and cobs reserved
4 fluid ounces dry white wine
1 14 ounce can coconut milk
1 cup vegetable stock or water
In a large saucepan or stockpot sweat shallots until translucent then deglaze with wine. Add corncobs, coconut milk and stock. Simmer for half an hour. Remove corncobs and discard. Add corn kernels and allow to simmer for 10- 15 minutes.
In a blender, purée corn mixture until smooth. Season to taste with salt then strain in fine sieve. Serve chilled.
Our Napa Valley Estate Oak Free Chardonnay is a fruit driven and refreshing wine. The use of coconut milk gives the soup the right texture to embrace the richness of the wine. The sweetness of corn is perfect for the ripe fruits of this Chardonnay. This is a wonderful chilled soup at lunch. If you wish to serve it warm at night, consider a bit of tofu or chicken for added texture.
