Ancre Hill Estates Organic Chardonnay 2018
Organic and biodynamic wine naturally produced in Wales, this is a Chardonnay that exudes delicacy and power
Country of origin | Wales
Region | Monmouthshire, South East
Grape Variety | Chardonnay
From lean to rich and creamy, this noble grape can produced a diverse range of styles. Unoaked styles are crisp, lean and minerally - pairing well with sushi and risotti. Oaked sttles with more bolder flavours, pair well with linguini vongole, halbut, pork loin, rich root vegetables and mushrooms. Medium bodied with medium acidity, typical aromas include yellow apple, pineapple, citrus, vanilla and butter.
Style | Fresh & Light
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).
