Essence du Cap

Essence du Cap Chardonnay

This medium bodied Chardonnay is brilliantly clear with light straw yellow hue and green tints. Fresh citrus notes are prominent on the nose and it opens up into tropical fruit aromas and just a hint of oak spice. This is a fruit driven wine with a lovely balance between acidity and fruit. The wood adds to the fullness but without dominating the wine. A beautiful balance between sweetness and acidity is complemented by a long lingering finish. Enjoy now or let it mature for 2 to 4 years.

Rich seafood especially shellfish such as mussels and oysters as well as line fish work sublimely with this wine. It also stands up well to creamy curries and rich chicken dishes.

Pairs with:
Oysters
Cheddar Cheese
Grilled Chicken
