Excelsior 2020 Chardonnay, South Africa
The De Wet family has been making wine in South Africa since 1697. A remarkably approachable wine, this Chardonnay has delicious smooth lemon-lime fruit with a hint of tropical fruit cocktail and a nice clean finish. There is enough acid to refresh the mouth nicely and the overall impression is of a medium bodied, clean, well balanced Chardonnay - everything is nice and pure. Paired it recently with a simple roasted chicken - delicious! And a great bargain.
A delicious fruit medley of peaches, lemons, orange blossom and zest on the nose and palate. The palate is creamy and delectable, with a clean finish from the bright acidity. Try with salmon or seafood mousse, British fish pie, chicken.
