Wine Review: This straw colored Chardonnay from South Africa is very good and was liked by all those who tried it. It opens with a mild pear bouquet with a hint of ginger. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a blend of gentle oak and mild pear with hints of faint lemon. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Chard is very food friendly and would pair nicely with many dishes. I would pair this Chard with chicken cordon bleu. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Golden with green hues. Hot toasted brioche with zesty marmalade. Backbone of lime and lemongrass with floral notes of honeysuckle and frangipani on the palate. Warm, rich vanilla and a creamy almond finish.
