Planeta - Chardonnay 2010-12
Golden yellow with greenish hue. On the nose it comes across very intense, with citrus fruit flavours, chestnut, honey and a spicy complexity.
Rich, ripe, and bursting with tropical fruit that springboards onto the tongue with a healthy lashing of oak.
Colour: Golden yellow with a bright, greenish hue.
Nose: Very intense, fruity bouquet with citrus, lime and peachy notes, lightly balsamic with hints of mint and sage, nutty tones and orange blossom.
Palate: Dry and elegant with a good balance of fresh acidity and a supple, aromatic persistance, very well integrated, complex oak characters add depth to this beautifuly well crafted wine.
Drinks very well on release but will mature for 6 to 8 years.
Richly flavoured, fleshy fish, mushroom and truffle risotto and medium bodied, hard cheeses.
