- Food Pairing
On the nose are aromas of ripe pineapple, white peach, guava and lemon cream. The palate is fresh and lively with flavours of royal gala apple, tropical mango, pineapple and tangerine. With a rounded texture and a lengthy, mouth-watering finish.
The 2017 vintage began cool and rainy however a warm snap in early Autumn allowed the fruit to fully ripen in time for harvest.
The grapes were harvested in late October with a portion set aside to dry for 45 days in the traditional appassimento method. The wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks.
Drinking beautifully now, this wine will continue at its best through to the year 2021.
Pair the Unoaked Chardonnay with grilled or seared white fish topped by fresh fruit salsa, baked trout, ceviche, herbed chicken, veal scaloppini, fresh summer salads, or by itself on the patio.
