Estate Chardonnay 2018, Paul Cluver Wines

£18.95 per bottle

About this wine

On the nose the Paul Cluver Chardonnay reveals great aspects of citrus with some stone fruit and oak notes. Tangerine fruit and citrus blossom fragrances are apparent, with hints of vanilla pod and almond flakes.  The palate is an exciting combination of crisp citrus fruit with great complexity, concentration. The balanced, fresh acidity is natural, and adds focus to the wine. The good acidity and balance between wood and fruit keeps the wine from being overly rich and consequently, great without food too.

Food pairing: Fish, poultry, pork and game bird dishes work well with this wine. It works particularly well with creamy pastas and salmon dishes.  Mussel soup is a perfect match.

    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."
