Meerlust Chardonnay 2006

Bright, vivacious platinum hue with green tinge. Complex bouquet of lemongrass, limes lemon meringue, oatmeal, quince and expressive minerality. On the palate the wine is medium bodied but with bright acidity, flavours of lime, marzipan, creamy oak and expansive apple and pear characteristics, balanced by pure, linear mineral notes and finishing clean and long.

Grilled fish, white and red meat. Ideally served at 12° - 14° C.
