Matured in oak barrels for a minimum of six months, this estate Chardonnay displays an unusual flowery aroma with citrus and exotic fruits. It's taste is harmonious, with a slight note of almond in the finish.

Chardonnay de Purcari balances strong cheeses and enhances the flavor of fish, sea food and creamy chicken dishes. Its slight effervescence will complement a fine dinner as your guests linger in conversation at the table. We recommend that you enjoy the aromas and taste of this wine at the temperature of 14C.
