Santa Rita Chardonnay, Chile

blog 156

Another attractive looking bottle… This chardonnay from the Limarí Valley (the northernmost vineyard district in Chile) is produced quite close to the equator however the valley is cooled by sea breezes. This gives many ‘old-world’ wines a run for their money…

Tasting notes: Bright, golden colour. A full-flavoured Chardonnay. It displays citrus aromas and apple and stone fruit flavours. Very good chardonnay at an excellent price. Some creaminess on the palate. Good texture.

Price – £7.99 as part of a mixed case of 6

Current Vintage – 2016
Producer – Santa Rita
Grape – 100% Chardonnay
Region/Country – Limari, Chile

Food Pairing: This would go well with the usual poultry and fish dishes, but was so good it didn’t need food.

Thanks Jon!
