Hoopenburg Chardonnay 2000

Pale of hue, this Chardonnay has an open nose with a fresh, lemony fragrance and tart pineapple aromas and flavours. There is a hint of fatness on the finish from the lees contact, but a firm acidity make it a must with light, yet rich foods such as Black Mussel Soup or Lobster Curry.
