Brown Brothers Chardonnay
A cool climate crisp Chardonnay from the King Valley.
Golden colour in the glass with a youthful green hue; lovely aromas of melons and pear. Crisp and vibrant with fresh stone fruit flavours and a long satisfying finish. Balanced oak handling adds interesting nutty characters to the wine.
Recommended food pairings:
This stylish Chardonnay would be lovely with a pan-fried chicken breast wrapped in prosciutto drizzled in the cooking juices and served with a garden salad. Alternatively, it would be a good accompaniment to a mild soft rind cheese such as brie or camembert.
