Groote Post Unwooded Chardonnay 2009

This typical flinstone mineral Chardonnay from the Darling Hills is packed with marmalade and ginger flavours. Appealing citrus aspect with a lively acid structure and great length. One of the best examples of this style in the country.

An ideal food partner, especially with Asian and Fusion cuisine.
