Glen Carlou Vineyards Glen Carlou Barrel Select Chardonnay
Rum (Chardonnay) Molasses, Continuous Stilled, Non-vintage (not aged)


An elegant Chardonnay with a bright straw colour and green highlights on the edge, showing first impressions of ripe apple and citrus with a hints of herb and an attractive minerality. With exceptionally good volume and complexity, this wine is steely and alive on the palate. Ending clean, with prominent grapefruit and a light spice sensation sustained by a clear acidity that refreshes the palate, concludes a rounded experience, for this well-made Chardonnay.

Paired well with foods that have toasty flavours, as from toasted nuts, pastry crust – grilling or smoking. Meals with a silky texture, such as risottos and cream-enhanced soups, sauces and pastas, pairs well with this aged and oaked Chardonnay.
