Grande Provence Chardonnay 2010

This is an elegant, full bodied, well balanced white wine with outstanding fruit and wood integration.

On the nose and palate there is upfront citrus, almond and creamy aromas. These are complemented by vanilla and butterscotch from the well integrated wood. The mouth feel is soft and the finish lingering and elegant.

This wine can be enjoyed on its own or served with smoked fish, seafood with creamy sauces, pork dishes, and ripened soft cheeses.
