Katnook Estate Chardonnay 2008
Food Matching: This refreshing and elegant wine will suit a platter of salmon gravlax served with a light oil and caper vinaigrette. Try also with baked chicken breast filled with toasted macadamia pieces and soft cheese.
Colour: Light brilliant gold with light green tinted edges.
Nose: A complex and harmonious nose combining attractive peach,nectarine and hints of grapefruit with well integrated barrel maturation characters of vanilla, toast, marzipan and a gentle butterscotch note.
Palate: A richly layered palate structure, appealing fruit of peach and nectarine, melon and citrus notes are combined with subtle oak flavours. Sweet vanillin and creamy barrel fermentation characters highlight the light toast notes. The oak flavours and hints of buttery malolactic are in fine balance with the long lingering fruit flavours.
