  1. PaulM029

    We sometimes have doubts about Chardonnay unless of course a special occasion calls for Burgundy but this one has much of the more expensive virtues. It’s creamy, full of flavour with a good nose, ripe for drinking any time. We found it strong enough to deal with tuna.
    Neither over-sweet or over-dry this Chardonnay is just perfect! Thank you!
