Tasting NotesOn our estate the Chardonnay tends to accumulate more potassium in the skins. When the potassium is allowed to be extracted in the juice, it leads to a big drop in ph. We therefore went through the pressing process with urgency, obtaining juice that is clean, has a high natural acidity and a good ph. This wine has lemon and lime flavours supported on the palate by characters of lees contact. The wine has a good balance and its acidity creates a vibrantly fresh wine.

Food MatchSmoked fish, salades, white meat.
