More about this wine

In the nose, all exotic fruit and flower garden. In the mouth, white peach and mild honey, finishing with toasted vanilla.

Eat with antipasto or tapas, seafood, alpine cheeses - or just drink on its own.

Serve at 10-12°C. ABV 12.8%.

Ben says (May 2017): This is a lovely, elegant wine. The pure aromas and flavours of Chardonnay remain perfectly. Please do not think of tasting this wine if you prefer a high-oak blockbuster. This is a wine for those who like the grape to be shown at its best.
