MIXED CASE £45

On opening the bottle there was no immediate aroma.
The label is simple and minimalist and I thought the wiggly line running across it indicated the Brook in the name.
I had this wine served well chilled with a starter of mackerel and salad and it went down very well. It is not as oaky as I had expected and what I have been used to. This is a refreshing subtle yet crisp white wine with a pale straw colour which could also be enjoyed by drinking it without accompanying food.
The taste to me was of what I imagined to be ripe pineapples and slightly biscuity but my friend thought it to be more of a tangy zesty adventure with well balanced aromatic flavours. We agreed to disagree, however we both loved this wine.
I have to say Chardonnay would not usually be my first choice for white wine but I would buy this again as it was easy drinking with a lovely short finish.
8/10 from me.
