Backsberg Kosher Chardonnay 2018

Lemon zest, melon and hazelnut characters combine to give a complex yet fresh nose and palate. Natural acidity is balanced by sweet fruit flavours of white peach. A medium-bodied wine with a long, rewarding finish.

The acid balance of this wine makes it the perfect accompaniment to salads, cold meats and light pasta dishes.
