Tasting note: A light and easy-drinking white, this cheerful Chardonnay comes with moderate alcohol, presenting an approachable and friendly face of this ever-popular grape variety. Seductive sweet pear and candy on the nose, with a hint of melon. Lively acidity complements sweet peach and pear fruit on a lean palate. Crisp, citrusy finish. A well-made, balanced wine that will refresh on a warm summer evening and brighten up a grey day.
Food pairing recommendation: A harmonious and versatile drink that goes very well with poultry and fish as well as a creamy pasta dish. Pair it with goat cheeses such as St. Helen's or Picodon to bring out the best in both.
