Bon Courage Hillside White Colombard Chardonnay 2011

A medley of fresh fruit flavours, including peaches, pears and lemons is offered by this wine's bouquetand palate. Full on fruit, the firm acid adds to the wine's briskly clean style and youthful appeal. The rich characters of this wine are not only in the nose but also in the lingering aftertaste.

The Chardonnay compliments the fruitiness and breaks the natural high acidity of the Colombard. Ideal with seafood and lightly spiced meat.
