New Release - Mellasat Chardonnay 2013
To all Chardonnay fans, we have great news! We released our 2013 Chardonnay on Chardonnay Day which took place end of May 2017.
Come and taste this stunning Chardonnay. The colour is pale gold with green tinges. On the nose there are hints of lemon grass, roasted walnuts, custard and freshly cut hay. The flavours follow to the palate with a long and lingering aftertaste.
The 2013 Chardonnay was barrel fermented in 300L French oak (15% second fill and 85% third, fourth and fifth fill) and matured for 11 months. Batonnage was done to add to the creamy and subtle mouthfeel. The wine drinks beautifully now, but we have no doubt that it can be aged further.
It is a great food wine that will pair with a variety of dishes like salmon or trout, cheese platters or chicken and white meat dishes. So, whether you're looking to drink it now or add it to your cellar collection, come and visit us to taste this super new vintage!
