Neethlingshof Chardonnay 1998

Pale to medium depth; clear and bright straw colour. It has a youthful and fruity with soft, peachy, with limey and oaky undertones. A medium-bodied wine in the style of a white Burgundy. Subtle but exotic flavours of toast, lime, pear and almond that linger on the finish. An attractive all-round wine which can be enjoyed with a wide variety of poultry or fish, vegetables in creamy sauces, and salads dressed with Balsamic vinegar and walnut oil. Serve chilled at around 12ºC.
