Tokara Chardonnay 2019

Tokara Chardonnay 2019

The wine displays a brilliant pale straw colour. Aromas of fresh pineapple and apricot spring from the glass. Lightly toasted brioche characters, testament to the barrel ageing on the lees, compliment the nose. The entry on the palate is vibrant with fresh sweet lime, grapefruit and subtle ginger spice notes. The palate has a smooth texture with a refreshing finish.

A perfect pairing with fish and chicken dishes or served as an aperitif.
