Chardonnay 2021, Tokara

£16.50 per bottle

About this wine

The Tokara Chardonnay 2021 displays a brilliant pale straw colour. Aromas of yellow lemon skin and lime blossom interplay with lightly toasted brioche characters, subtle cinnamon and vanilla. The entry on the palate is vibrant with fresh sweet lime, roasted lemon, appealing chalkiness and the lightest element of ginger. The palate has a beautiful silky texture – testament to it being barrel aged on the lees – and a refreshingly dry finish.

Food pairing: A perfect pairing with fish and chicken dishes where lemon has been incorporated or served as an aperitif.

Alcohol: 13.25% ABV

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."
