DRINK OF THE WEEK  -
24th July 2017
Extra Special Chardonnay
ASDA 5.50
Drinker Rating 89

Fashion,  by its very nature changes, and in the wine world it's most pronounced in the evolution of chardonnay. Back in the 80s and 90s the trend was for big oaky New World chardonnay typified by California and Australia. As time has moved on so has our taste with a desire for more subtlety and elegance.

This is a lovely wine, Old World chardonnay from France, restrained, poised and balanced.  It had bags of zesty lime and is really refreshing and bright. Great with food or on its own in the summer rain.
