Ascension Chardonnay / 2019
Pale yellow with a green hue. A fragrant bouquet of white flowers, nectarine and pear with underlying cashew and citrus notes. Lovely toasty oak florals help lift to white flower bouquet. The palate is medium-full bodied with stone fruit and fresh citrus flavours and creamy biscuit characters from lees influence. Subtle oak sweetness adds to the richness and length of the palate. The wine has an elegant, refined structure and finishes with fine mineral acidity.
The Altus Rise Ascension Chardonnay 2019 would be perfectly paired with sea bass and fennel purée.
