Backsberg Premium Chardonnay 2019

Platter Review: 3.5 *

A fusion of intense fruit-forward flavours, such as pineapple, cashew and cream, are balanced by a fresh, citrus finish. Fruit is picked at various stages of ripeness to create a layered and complex flavour profile. Fermentation takes place in a selection of new French oak barrels for 3 months. Thereafter, aging on the lees for 4 months further contributes to the full-bodied nature and creamy texture of this wine. Best enjoyed within 6 years, although further ageing can yield a beautifully complex and interesting wine.

Food Pairing
This flavour-filled wine ideally matches seafood and cream-based pasta dishes.
