Dry Chardonnay (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower) (1) Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2020 and older
Rich and creamy wine with layers of vanilla, butter and stone fruit. Full bodied wine with a soft and lengthy finish
I paired this wine with an eisbein/lamb potjiekos recipe of myself. The fruit typicity balanced with delicate hints of oak in this Chardonnay is complimented by the smokey flavours of the eisbein. Both combines to a luscious mouth explosion.
