Theuniskraal Semillon/Chardonnay 1999

This elegant blend reflects the best attributes of its two classic cultivars. The wine is unwooded, dry and medium-bodied, with lively fruit acids and traces of apple and lime. Chill and enjoy on its own, or serve with white meat and fish dishes. Also a delicious partner to noble cheeses.
