Although chardonnay often enjoys a dull spot as the dominant expression of white wine, sometimes there are wines that simply win you over with their excellent quality—and this is one of those wines.

A pale yellow evocative of lemon zest, it offers bright notes of citrus and pear.

Dry but gushing with fruit, this is a lime and lemon-heavy wine with only a gentle roundness from the oak, rather than offering a wood-heavy finish or taste.

A gentle finish without cloying sweetness; serve around 10 degrees celsius to balance maximum refreshment and flavour.

A true Hoochsavvy power performer that pairs delectably with greens and chicken.

Hoochsavvy Grade: A
