Fleur du Cap Chardonnay 2007
The Chardonnay displays a beautiful toast aroma on the nose with hints of apricot melon and citrus fruit. It is dry with a well balanced weight and fullness that demands attention. A zesty palate packed with apricot and citrus fruit flavour is supported by lovely nut butterscotch and vanilla oak nuances. The flavour gains intensity in the mouth with a fascinating long finish. It will mature well over the next 2 to 4 years. An ideal accompaniment to sushi oysters and full-flavoured fish such as tuna and salmon. Excellent with pasta or a white meat dish served with a rich creamy sauce.
