Nederburg Chardonnay 2001 Private Bin D166

For Auction Only
Made especially for the Nederburg Auction, the 2001 vintage Private Bin D166 is a new addition to the range. A generous wine, where the rich varietal character is enhanced by delicate buttery tones and wood vanillas. The fruit flavours are mainly peach, lemon and a delicate hint of muscat, all balanced with a crisp acidity and a long, luscious finish. An excellent food wine, it can be enjoyed with white meat, lamb casserole, fish, seafood, creamy asparagus or delicate spicy foods.
