Bon Courage André Fame Colombard 2008

This wine's attraction lies in its fresh, exuberant aromas and invigorating palate. The concentrated guava and pineapple fruitiness on the nose spills over onto the palate. Rounded in the mouth full of flavour, yet light and lively.

Delightful summer quaffer yet a pleasing food wine. This juicy, crisp wine, with its lingering fruity after-taste is ideal with seafood and lightly-spiced white meats.
