Chardonnay 2019, Babylonstoren

£21.50 per bottle

About this wine

Babylonstoren Chardonnay is an old world style Chardonnay with a fresh, fine-grained nose of quince, lime and vanilla. The palate has a classy, sleek structure with subtle citrus fruit softened with textured creaminess and nutty complexity.  Tangy mineral tones with fine intensity and balance; good focus and length with a refreshing finish.

Serving temperature:  Chilled, 11–12°C (51–53°F)

Ageing potential: Ready to be enjoyed within the year of production, but will mature well for the next four to six years.

Food pairing: Creamy dishes from white wine pasta sauces to Hollandaise, white fish and risotto as well as light truffle and blue cheese flavours. It works well with sushi but also delicious with fresh and roasted nuts.

    string(513) "Possibly the most famous grape variety in the world, Chardonnay has found a home in pretty much every corner of the wine world. From crisp, flinty Chablis styles to full-bodied, oaky, rich Napa Valley Chardonnay it is a variety which has the ability to morph according to the climate or winemaking philosophy. It also has the capacity to produce amongst the greatest white wines in the world. Some praise indeed for this chameleon variety, the likes of which may only truly be matched by Riesling or Chenin Blanc."
