Leopards Leap Chardonnay 2016

Wine style: A surprisingly voluptuous, medium-bodied, unwooded Chardonnay made in a New World style. Nose: Elegant fruit aromas of pear and lime are beautifully balanced by biscuit nuances. Well-rounded, the palate reveals flavours of ripe grapefruit and lemon zest, supported by undertones of hazelnut that provide a unique aftertaste

Chardonnay is renowned for being one of the most versatile food wines. The well-integrated acidity of this wine complement a wide variety of white wine based dishes and serves as a companion to creamy sauces, roast chicken, pork, cheeses such as Brie and Gruyère.
