Quoin Rock Chardonnay 2018

Quoin Rock Chardonnay 2018

Straw colour with hint of green - youthful and vibrant. Attractive nose showing ripe citrus and orange peel leading to hints of vanilla spice oak and toasted brioche. Citrus peel on palate with good weight and lightly buttery texture. The wine is well balanced with fresh acid and minerality. Persistent lemon/lime on the finish

An absolutely beautiful wine, perfect on its own, but also the ideal partner to most seafood dishes, crayfish with homemade mayonnaise.
