Oysters, Scallop and Chardonnay risotto with a basil cream sauce, Cape linefish, Cheeses.
Creamy citrus, nutty, mineral and elderflower flavours with a refreshing acidity. An elegant wine with a persistent finish.
“Stately restraint to wonderful depth of flavor, firm minerality and a year’s all-new French oak give gravitas to enduring, viscous finish of ’09. Shows more as ‘fine white wine of the world’ than obvious New-world chardonnay.” - Platter's SA Wine Guide (2013)
