Seven Flags Chardonnay 2018, Paul Cluver Wines

£43.95 per bottle

About this wine

The Paul Cluver Seven Flags Chardonnay is a great expression of what both Elgin and the the Paul Cluver Estate can produce. Just like its Pinot Noir partner, the Paul Cluver Seven Flags Chardonnay undergoes both vineyard and barrel selection, in a quest by Paul Cluver to create the ultimate expression of the variety.   The 2018 vintage shows a light hay hue and the nose is expressive with notes of fresh citrus zest which is complimented by stone fruit and hints of oak. The palate is an exciting combination of crisp citrus fruit with great complexity, concentration and hints of oak in the background. The wine is elegant with a long and lingering finish.

Food pairing: Fish, poultry, pork and game bird dishes work well with this wine. It works particularly well with creamy pastas and salmon dishes. The good acidity and balance between wood and fruit keeps the wine from being overly rich and consequently, great without food too. Mussel soup is a perfect match.

Paul Cluver have had four very exceptional successive vintages for the Seven Flags Chardonnay, the 2015 vintage produced a very elegant Chardonnay that was very tight with great freshness. 2016 was a vintage
with great opulence and more richness. The 2017 vintage gave a combination of characteristics of both the 2015 and 2016 vintages. The Seven Flags Chardonnay 2018 is a great combination between elegance and
concentration.

    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."
