Medium minus gold in colour with medium+ intensity. On the nose there’s medium minus oak and toast, lemon tart, meringue, apricot, apple, peaches & cream corn, wet stone and light nutmeg. The taste is dry, med+ acidity, med to full body, med+ length and balanced. The taste is similar to the nose. The alcohol is well hidden considering it’s 14.5%. This chard is smooth, with no bitter after taste. Drink on it’s own or with snow crab with drawn butter.
This is a Best Buy wine.
