Brampton Unoaked Chardonnay 2011

The attractive fresh tropical notes on the nose lead to delicious fleshy peach and white aromas. The palate shows great density and richness well balanced by vibrant fruit purity in the middle and a crisp clean citrus finish.

The wine will be a perfect companion to a deliciously decant salad of pears and blue cheese.
