IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING

Checkmate Attack Chardonnay 2014

Regular price $130.00

Winemaking and Foudre combine to impart aromas of Asian spice with wet stones and flint on the nose. The palate has a zesty entry, with a hint of richness and minerals followed by a lingering flavour of lychee, ginger, and spice. This is a unique, modern Chardonnay that also pays homage to the old world.

“The wine is both elegant and seductive, with notes of lychee on the nose and palate. The oak imparts a suggestion of spice that supports bright and lively fruity flavours.”

“Stony, seashore, flinty aromas mark the nose with flecks of five spice and tropical notes. The palate is equally lively with bright citrus flavours with bits of ginger, mineral and sea salt. A fresh, inviting impressive white wine with a big future. Next World BC chardonnay.”
