Chardonnay 2020, Babylonstoren

£21.50 per bottle

About this wine

Babylonstoren Chardonnay is an old world style Chardonnay with a rich nose of lemon curd and freshly baked butter biscuits. The beautifully fruity core is perfectly balanced by layers of oak spice, vanilla and roasted almonds in the image of the best white Burgundy.  A supple palate with fresh acidity and an underlying minerality, which adds focus and length to the 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: The elegance and substance of the wine will complement mushroom risotto, creamy pasta dishes, rich fish dishes, hollandaise-based dishes and also steak béarnaise.

Alcohol: 14% ABV

    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."
