Avontuur Pinot Noir / Chardonnay 2015

Avontuur Pinot Noir / Chardonnay 2015

Colour: Rose Quartz.
Aroma: Pomegranate, strawberry and vanilla tantalize the nose.
Flavour: Strawberries and cream follow through from the nose and the partial oak maturation adds a soft creaminess to the taste experience, with a fresh acidity given by whiffs of red currants.
Finish: A crisp fruity mouth feel with a lingering finish.

The perfect wine for lunch or a light supper with friends. Great with sushi, salads, and cold fish or cured meat platters.
