Avontuur Luna de Miel Chardonnay Reserve 2018

Avontuur Luna de Miel Chardonnay Reserve 2018

Aroma: Orange peel nuances delightfully combine with subtle ginger spice notes. This adds an interesting minerality on the nose. A hint of buttery Melba toast shows the barrel influence. 

Flavour: Full-bodied and mellow with a lingering aftertaste. Citrus peel, nectarines and spice follow through from the nose with classic minerality providing the backbone. Well balanced acidity, whiffs of vanilla and deciduous fruit make this wine a complex tasting experience.

This ultimate food wine will compliment Malay curries, freshly grilled fish and langoustines.
