Seven Flags Chardonnay 2020, Paul Cluver Wines

£57.95 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 2020 vintage shows a light-yellow green hue, and the nose is a beautiful melody of fresh citrus fruits which is complimented by stone fruit and hints of oak. The palate is pure, precise, and focussed with great complexity, concentration, texture with a lingering and layered aftertaste. The wine is complex and elegant with great cellaring potential.

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.

Alcohol: 12.85% 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."
