Boschendal Classic Jean Garde Cardonnay 2013

Pale gold, bight, and lively, with outspoken attractive aromas centred on pure lime and yellow fruit, tinged with fragrant Spring flowers. The palate burst with lush, ripe, fleshy peach and melon fruit. A balancing, citrus freshness leaves a deliciously riveting finish.
