Description: Bright gold in colour with medium+ nose.
Rich, smooth & complex wine whose taste come in waves. Medium toasty oak with buttery popcorn, lemon zest, tangarine, pineapple, limestone, nectarine, apricot, ginger, dill & butterscotch. Medium+ body, good acidity, extremely long length & unusual low alcohol for a chard of such richness.
Interesting Point: Use the smaller chard glasses to capture the complexity of this wine & be careful not to over chill it.
Drink now or over the next 2-3 years on its own or with white tail tuna sashimi.
