The R Collection Chardonnay opens with aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, ripe melon, pear and
vanilla with a touch of sweet oak. Bright tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and mango followed by kiwi,
green apple, pear, vanilla and honey on the finish. Medium-bodied with very light oak influence, this
Chardonnay is nicely balanced with a rich, smooth mouthfeel and a long finish.
This food friendly wine will pair well with a wide variety of grilled fish, from sea bass, swordfish and
tuna to salmon and halibut. Also a great match for roast or grilled chicken, stuffed Cornish game hen,
seared scallops with citrus butter, fresh lobster salad, linguini tossed with olive oil, tomato, garlic and
basil or Thai spring rolls with a sweet and sour ginger dipping sauce.
This is the first time that I tried this brand of chardonnay and was very pleasantly surprised. This chardonnay is smooth and absolutely bursting with flavor. For anyone that enjoys a full flavored, well balanced chardonnay I would highly recommend this!
