A nice, smooth and well priced for RRV Chard

Description: Bright gold in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. This wine features light smoked toasted oak, lemon meringue, green apples, pear, peach, ginger, dill, oak spice, light butterscotch, limestone and white roses on the nose. Medium+ body with good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Note: Don't over chill the wine, and use the larger Chard style glassware

Drink now or in the next 3 years on its own or pair it with Roasted Potatoes and Dill Sausage.

Tasted: 27 March 2016
