Avontuur Luna de Miel Chardonnay Reserve 2016

Avontuur Luna de Miel Chardonnay Reserve 2016

Aroma: Whiffs of orange blossom delightfully combine with coconut and vanilla from subtle oak treatment. Ripe stonefruit adds a tantalising freshness.
Flavour: Full-bodied and smooth with a lingering aftertaste. Citrus peel follow through from the nose with classic minerality providing the backbone. Well balanced acidity and fruitiness make this a wine to be proud of.

Thai curry with coconut cream, butter chicken or lightly spiced pork belly. Try it with desserts like white chocolate and citrus panacotta for something different.
