Description

"It is elegantly fragrant on the nose showing green rockmelon, nectarine, lemon peel and vanilla characters with hints of toasted almond and nougat. The palate displays attractive fruit intensity and succulent mouthfeel, beautifully supported by creamy texture and refreshing acidity. Excellent value for money, the wine is very easy on the palate. At its best: now to 2019." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2017

An elegant wine with a fragrant bouquet displaying lifted aromas of fresh nectarine and white peach with integrated oak spice. The palate is soft, round and creamy with hints of zesty citrus and a touch of hazelnut. Medium in body with great mouthfeel and depth of fruit. The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness, fermented in oak and underwent malolactic fermentation. This Wishbone Chardonnay is perfect for dinking now and with careful cellaring can be enjoyed over the next two to three years.

Food Pairing: A great match with roast chicken or creamy pasta.
