Uruguay is maybe more commonly known for it's rustic reds but did you know they produce some world class white wines too? Intense but delicate fruit aromas of melon, red apple and pineapple with a very delicate touch of honey. Complex, dry and lively acid that gives freshness and length on the palate. Serve at 10°C degrees

Food Matching: Chardonnay's partner well with a range of dishes – from complex salads to light pasta, and chicken or seafood dishes.
