Beyond the nose, this is a very nice, smooth Chard
Description: Light bright gold in colour with medium+ intense nose. This wine features light toasted oak, lemon, green and yellow apples, papaya, pear, and light oak spice. Medium+ body with good acidity and a long length.
Negatives: Acetic notes on the nose
Interesting Note: Works with both New and Old World style Chard glasses, but I give the edge to the New World, which gives it more creaminess.
Drink now or in the next 5 years on its own. Pairs amazingly well with with green papaya chicken curry cooked over a wood stove.
