Following on from last weeks review of the Chamlija Albarino, this week I am reviewing the 2013 Chardonnay.
After 1 month fermentation in the barrel, a Burgundy style batônnage and a minimum of 12 months in new French medium toast oak barrels, the result is a well balanced Chardonnay. A great white wine; smooth, buttered, lightly toasted, the wood is melted with no aggressivity at all.
This wine can be drunk now or left for a few years to mature.
Match this wine with smoked salmon, lobster, chicken with creamy sauces and fresh tarragon. I like it a lot.
You can find this wine in Istanbul at Carrefour Gurme outlets.
