A simple Chard

Description: Light gold in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. Lots of lemon, lime, grapefruit, limestone followed by ginger and some caramel on the finish. Medium body with good acidity and an average length.

Negatives: A touch too tart for me.

Interesting Point: Better than the 2012 vintage but no where nearly as good as the  2011.

Drink now on its own or pair it with Spicy Indonesian Ginger Chicken.
