Rietvallei JMB Chardonnay is a full-bodied, complex wine with excellent fruit and wood integration. Lots of work in the vineyard and minimal interference in the cellar allows this wine to express its terroir to the fullest. A complex nose rich in citrus aromas complemented by some spicy, toasted oak notes. The palate is rich and creamy with a mixture of ripe orange, lemon and lime flavours. The oak is well integrated and only evident on the background and together with a firm acidity makes for a lingering finish.

Pair with roasted chicken, grilled duck, or any creamy poultry or fish dishes. Serve chilled (7-10ÂșC).
