23/12/01 – Santa Carolina (Chile) Chardonnay 1998

Santa Carolina (Chile) Chardonnay 1998
This is a lovely chardonnay with a creamy, nutty nose and hints of butterscotch, tropical fruit and warm toast. Medium bodied, the plate has excellent balance with fine, ripe but restrained tropical fruit flavours, lovely lime-fresh acidity and moderate toasty oak in the finish. A very nicely judged and natural tasting chardonnay that would be fine for sipping on its own, or drinking with fish or other lighter dishes. UK price and stockist: Oddbins 4.49
