Swartland Winemakers' Collection Chardonnay 2014

Colour: Lovely straw colour wine.
Bouquet: Upfront tropical and butterscotch flavours on the nose with hints of sweet melon.
Palate: This wine has full ripe developed Chardonnay flavours, creamy, butterscotch supported by tropical dry fruit flavour. Experience the full, rich palate and lingering after taste.

As this is not a wooded Chardonnay, but still a good full bodied wine, you can enjoy it with chicken in a creamy sauce, salmon or white fish sautéed in butter. Also try roasted chicken and veal dishes as well as pastas with bazil/pesto.
