From the vine, to you, with love. Lots of melons and peaches (but not the tinned kind).
Chardonnay when made in this fresh, leaner style, is a lovely summery drink. Forget the flabby chardonnay wines of yesteryear, this is the modern incarnation of the variety with plenty to enjoy in its youth. Melons, white peach and a hint of nutty complexity drive a soft textured palate but in the end it’s just a wonderful drink.
A rush of peach and melon is met by more of the nuttiness from the bouquet. This is a lithe, seamless white wine. Serve with roast quail, pork chops or salad nicoise.
