Backsberg Kosher Chardonnay 2011

Lemon zest, melon and hazelnut characters mingle to give a complex and fresh aroma. Natural acidity is balanced by sweet fruit flavours of white peach providing a medium bodied palate with a long rewarding finish.

The acid fruit balance of this wine is perfect with salads, cold meats and light pasta dishes.
