Avontuur Luna de Miel Chardonnay Reserve 2013

Avontuur Luna de Miel Chardonnay Reserve 2013

Aroma: Wonderfully nutty aroma with a tang of ginger which combines beautifully with citrus tones.
Flavour: Full-bodied with a crisp, lingering aftertaste. Fresh citrus with grapefruit prominence, an interesting minerality and typical butteriness on the finish. Well balanced, a classy wine.

Grilled game fish, mildly spiced eastern cuisine, rich white meats e.g. roast duck.
