If you like classy oaked Chardonnay you’ll be delighted by this wine. The nose has layers of flowers, minerals and stones, with loads of white nectarine fruit interspersed with the nuttiness of poached pear. The palate is silky yet austere, with a rounder finish that gives its personality but with a clean and long lemon flavoured finish. It shows the epitome of balance with delicate flavours that keep emerging throughout its exceedingly persistent finish.

Try it with an Oriental dish like Hokkien noodles with chicken, chilli and bean sprouts, the wine can certainly hold a touch of heat, or more classic with a béarnaise gratinated salmon and a fresh herb salad. This Chardonnay is very versatile, and a simple Camembert and crusty bread will work just as well.
