Bon Courage Chardonnay Prestige Cuvee 2002

Veritas 2002 - Bronze
The influence of the French oak gives this wine an appealing round texture and great complexity. A lovely harmony is formed by a hint of citrus and vanilla that makes it an elegant wine. This wine is delicious with fish in a creamy sauce, sushi, Thai dishes, pate and turkey.
