Groote Post Unwooded Chardonnay 2006

NOT AVAILABLE FOR TASTING AT CELLAR DOOR

A full and riper style this year with layers and layers of flavours. Ripe melon on the nose and an unusual aspect of marmalade and preserved ginger offset with a firm acid structure makes this wine just the perfect food wine.

We recently paired it with a plate of fresh figs, gorgonzola and Parma ham. Heavenly!
