Judges Comments:

In a year of incredibly spectacular wines, to be awarded Champion, a wine needs to be something very special, which is exactly what this Chardonnay is. The finish is elegant and generous - wonderful on its own, but pair it with smoked chicken and you have a whole new dimension. Starting with really concentrated ripe peach and nectarine aromas, the palate is creamy with rich texture and well-structured by firm acidity.

Pairing Recommendation:

A super versatile wine that enhances all sorts of foods from the Sunday roast, pot-luck dinners, Mexican dishes, burger and ribs, pizza and pasta, as well as light lunches, savoury salads and of course picnics. Pair it with meaty and oily fish like salmon, tuna, hapuka and scallops, crayfish and crab as well as grilled mushrooms. Perfect with chips and dips, antipasti, smoked salmon, pre-dinner nibbles and cheese, particularly mozzarella, brie, camembert and feta.
