Louisvale Chardonnay 2003

A premium styled Chardonnay produced in the finest French oak available. The nose is intensely complex with aromas of lemon, melon, freshly baked bread and hazelnuts. The palate is smooth, buttery and very long on the finish.

A delightful white for an extra special occasion, complementing the finest fish, shellfish and poultry. Serve chilled at 8ºC.
