Douglas Green Chardonnay Colombard 2004

International Wine Challenge 2005 - Seal of Approval
Colour: Pale yellow with a youthful green tinge.
Nose: Attractive tropical pineapple and melon aromas with discreet floral and creamy vanilla tones.
Palate: Dry, medium bodied entry, with well rounded ripe tropical fruit salad flavours well balanced by a crisp lemon lime finish of pleasing length.
Overall: A medium bodied dry white wine with elegantly integrated varietal characteristics - crisp Colombard fruit supported by creamy Chardonnay fullness, makes this an attractive and approachable blend.

Drink well chilled as an aperitif on its own or to compliment grilled linefish with lemon, herb and garlic butter dishes, creamy chicken dishes, chilled summer soups, or vegetable stir-fries.
