Quoin Rock Chardonnay 2017

Quoin Rock Chardonnay 2017

Initial perception of vanilla-oak essence is followed by ripe orange-peel, melon and lemongrass characters on the nose, leading through to a lovely, creamy buttery mouthfeel with a wonderful, fresh finish. Beautiful oak integration.

An absolutely beautiful wine, perfect on its own, but also the ideal partner to most seafood dishes, in particular crayfish with homemade mayonnaise.mer sunsets.
