Burrowing Owl 2018 Chardonnay 750ml
A restrained, crisp and fresh Chardonnay that nicely balances aromas of ripe cantaloupe melon and peach fruit with complex popcorn, hazelnut, and lemon notes. The palate is medium-bodied, has crisp mineral acidity and intense lemon zest, nectarine, peach and some interesting subtle nutty oak notes in the background. The finish is long, crisp and refreshing with layers of flavours of savoury lees and fruit complexity that unfold in the glass. Pair this with halibut sautéed in butter or rotisserie chicken.
