Meerlust Chardonnay 1999

Pale gold colour. The initial aroma is honey and reminiscent of lemons and limes, with hints of creaminess, developing into a buttery and roasted hazelnut bouquet with hints of nougat, marzipan and white chocolate. The wine has a long and pleasant aftertaste of roasted almonds.

Grilled fish, white and red meat. Serve at 12 - 14°C.
