Backsberg Citrus Hill Chardonnay 2020

Backsberg celebrates five generations of winemaking heritage. As Chardonnay grapes and citrus fruit tend to thrive in similar soils, one might say that where good citrus grows, Chardonnay follows. In the case of Citrus Hill, good sense prevailed and Chardonnay took preference. Lightly oaked and aromatic, be charmed by notes of cashew, cream and bright citrus.
IWSC Silver (‘22)

The fruit is from both younger vines, that drive the fruit profile, and low-yielding older vineyards that provides a very finely structured backbone. These vines have been planted in sandy clay-loam soils. 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 creambased pasta dishes.
