Sweet bouquet of good French oak

French oak flows through Montvalley’s Chardonnay giving it a silky palate with an abundance of primary fruit characters such as lime, melon, peach, pineapple and nectarine layered with a bouquet of butterscotch and caramel. A hint of spice with cinnamon and cloves combined with a refreshing citrus acid gives the wine a long and flavoursome finish.

If its youthful charms can be resisted, it promises a significant cellaring life of 10 years.

Best paired with poultry dishes, pork, seafood or recipes that have a heavy cream or butter base.
