A true value Chard that stands out from the rest in this price range
Description: Bright gold in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This wine features light toasted oak, lemon zest, honeydew melon, white peach, pear, green apples, nutmeg, clove and coconut. Medium+ body with good acidity and a fairly long length.
Interesting Note: Don’t over chill this wine in order to for all the flavours to come out. I love that an entry level Chard has moderate alcohol of 13% vs 14% or higher.
Drink now or in the next 3-5 years on its own or pair it with Crab Alfredo.
