What it says on the label: “Complex and elegant style. Citrus and orchard fruits taste. Full of fresh, citrus aromas and flavours with hints of green apple, this is unoaked, crisp and elegant.”
Food combination: “Creamy pasta and chicken dishes.”
Retired Bloke says: A delicious Chardonnay from Sainsbury’s ‘Taste The Difference’ range. It went perfectly with Jacqui’s chicken casserole.
One for the wine rack? Definitely.
