When it comes to love, white wine probably isn’t the first to pop to your mind! Sparkling roses and deep merlots seem to steal the spotlight at this time of year- yet they most certainly shouldn’t! There’s nothing like the crisp finish, delectable fruity notes and radiant appeal of the perfect glass of white wine to evoke a romantic moment. Here’s three Louisvale favourite white wines that will make even the hardest heart melt in the month of love.
As pioneers of Chardonnay in South Africa, it’s hardly surprising to see this supreme king-of-the-white-wines occupy the spotlight. This ultra-premium Chardonnay has matured in fine French Oak, and the quality shows. Dazzle your date with a complex aroma redolent with lemon blossom, pineapple and apricot, toast and spice notes. The experience doesn’t end there! The palate is buttery-smooth and lingers deliciously.
Hand-picked and carefully pressed, this wine is 100% barrel fermented, and matures for 8-10 months in the oak cask. Pair with fish, pork, poultry or indulgent heavy pasta for a delicious treat
Louisvale Unwooded Chardonnay
