This is a wine with an elegant start, pleasing, gentle freshness and a soft finish. Its aftertaste leaves a refined and memorable impression.

Blueridge Chardonnay is best served at between 9 and 13 degrees, depending on the food and the season. Its crisp, refreshing taste blends well with buttery soft cheeses, pasta, fish, foie gras, white meats and light game dishes. It also holds its own as a party drink particularly on a summer’s evening. This is truly a white wine which will not disappoint and at about 14 lv. a bottle you will not be disappointed.

 

 

The Grape

The Chardonnay grape has a green skin and is believed to have come from the Burgundy wine region in France. It is a neutral grape whose many flavours are often associated with tropical fruit flavors. Chardonnay is renowned for its ease of cultivation and is able to adapt to many different soil conditions. It is a malleable grape that grows on a strong vine, with widespread leaf cover which can stall the nutrient and energy uptake of its grape bunches. Most vineyards balance this with some rigorous pruning. Chardonnay is a vine which buds very early and harvesting its grapes is extremely important because the grape quickly loses its acidity as soon as it is ripe.
