Sandstone Ridge 2018
A chardonnay-led blend offering a perfectly-balanced fuller wine than is typical in England, making it highly flexible as a solo or food matching wine. Hand-selected grapes and contact with young second-fill French oak barrels has enhanced the overall mouthfeel & complexity of this wine and supports the exotic array of aromas from honeysuckle, jasmine & peach to fresh coconut & vanilla with just a touch of white pepper spice.
Food Match: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO SERVE WITH YOUR ROAST TURKEY ON CHRISTMAS DAY. Its weight, acidity and balance copes extremely well with the multitude of flavours from ‘pigs in blankets’ to stuffing, brusselsprouts and roast parsnips, complimenting them with a palate-refreshing crispness. Do try it. English Chardonnay at its best!
Other Food Matches: Roast Pork/Chicken, Spaghetti Carbonara, Risotto, Clam Chowder, Chicken Liver pate, Potted shrimp, Lobster with butter
