100% Chardonnay from the Colchagua Valley, Chile
100% Hand picked & Hand sorting of bunches before press to select only the best. Lees work in the tank. 20% aged in French oak barrels for 4 months; 80% in stainless steel tanks.
Bright with golden hues. On the nose, delicate aromas of white peaches with hints of honey, slightly fumé. On the palate, creamy, soft, with balanced acidity and notes of bananas. Long, agreeable finish.
Try with dishes like eggs benedict or fine rich fish such as turbot, grilled chops with mushrooms, late summer vegetables such as red peppers, corn, butternut squash and pumpkin (pumpkin ravioli and a rich Chardonnay is very good). Cheddar cheese is a good bet if you’re looking for a chardonnay cheese pairing or snails in garlic butter
