Groot Constantia Chardonnay 2018

Platter review: 4.5*

This full bodied wine shows a mineral, chalky character with some mandarin orange and butterscotch on the nose. The rich butterscotch follows on the palate with layers of citrus and toasted almonds, all beautifully held together by a crisp, fresh acidity.

Food Pairing  
Dishes like eggs benedict, a steak béarnaise. Fine rich fish such as turbot, grilled veal chops with mushrooms, Late summer vegetables such as red peppers, corn, butternut squash and pumpkin.
