White Wine

Wine Spectator Notes : Fresh pear, yellow apple and lightly toasted brioche notes are wound together, with a juicy edge on the finish. Drink now.

Robert Parker Notes : Made from 100% Chardonnay, the competent 2012 Chardonnay offers up scents of lemon custard, white peaches and spice. It was aged in both stainless steel (80%) and American oak (20%), but there is virtually no wood to be found in this elegant, mid-weight Chardonnay.

Tasting Notes : This elegant Chardonnay has a delicate balance of fruit flavours and a light touch of oak. Golden straw in appearance, the wine has pleasing orange blossom and butterscotch aromas. On the palate the wine has fruity citrus, lime, pineapple and white each/nectarine flavours with a hint of vanilla spice. The light touch of oaking complements the fruit without being overpowering. Will pair nicely with textured and creamy dishes, such as creamy risottos, quiches, chicken a la king, and grilled fish dishes. This is a versatile Chardonnay: equally excellent with fire-steamed lobster on the beach or with line fish served by white gloved waiters at the Ritz. Serve chilled.
