Avontuur Luna de Miel Chardonnay Reserve 2017

Avontuur Luna de Miel Chardonnay Reserve 2017

Aroma: Orange peel delightfully combines with fresh ginger and an interesting minerality on the nose. White peach adds tantalising freshness.
Flavour: Full-bodied and crisp with a lingering aftertaste. Citrus peel, peach and spice follow through from the nose with classic minerality providing the backbone. Well balanced acidity and fruit make this wine a complex tasting experience.

Thai curry with coconut cream, Asian-inspired dishes and grilled game fish should work well with this ultimate food wine.
