Red Carpet Chardonnay
Chardonnay is treated as a multi-faced beauty in the world of wine. White wine made of her has pleasing aromas, mellow and with a textural feeling in the mouth. Moreover, wines made from Chardonnay have good acidity, finish and unique flavors. Chardonnay whites are already considered as top-class wines. Young Chardonnay wines have refreshing acidity and exhibit further aromas of green fruits. When getting more mature, however, Chardonnay wines will evolve into complex ones with rich aromas which will add to her stronger attractive qualities.
This wine shows brilliant aromas of tangerine, chamomile and wet stone combined with white floral notes. The palate shows notes of ripe pineapple, pear and apricot. Though surprisingly well integrated inits youth, the concentration and vibrant structure of this wine will allow it to age gracefully.
When served chilled, this Chardonnay is paired well with green salads, seafood, creamy pasta and chicken dishes.
