LOBOLA Chardonnay/Chenin Blanc 2014

Bright gold with a hue suggesting the oak use, citrus and butterscotch nose – citrus follows on palate and some quince. The balance is impeccable with grapefruit, vanilla and baked apple flavours with an intense finish.

Suitably versatile, this wine will pair well with a range of seafood dishes, chicken, pasta or vegetarian fare.
