True to our style the Seven Springs Unoaked Chardonnay remains a light wine with clean lines and pure fruit flavours with a typical Overberg minerality. As an unoaked Chardonnay this is quite an aromatic wine, showing floral notes of frangipani, sweet allysum and even orange blossomsand surprisingly a hint of oragne sponge cake. A dynamic palette with a grippy bramley apple acidity and wet pebble minerality.
Being a lighter wine it is easily enjoyed as an aperitif or as a “sundowner”, but pairing it with food is a breeze. Serving it at around 10 degrees Centigrade and with ceviche of fish or sushi is a real winner. It also stands up to lightly spicy dishes or soups and is great with chicken salad and a main fish dish.
