Chardonnay Opoka Cru 2018 detajl

Wine description

Deep gold yellow, with mineral fragrances. Fatty, reminiscent of the fragrances of dried fruit, and honey, bread and melted butter. In the glass, it quickly develops its ability, with a light line of vanilla. Approaching a salty taste, with increasing finish. In a nutshell: the greatest. An absolutely prestigious wine, with excellent aging potential.

With food

Chardonnay Opoka, a wine with extremely full body, is recommended with dishes full of flavour, including those with a rather strong taste based on mushrooms, mussels and truffles (pasta, rice, gnocchi or polenta), rich sea food and non-fatty meat (duck, lamb meat, chicken), with various herb or cream sauces or foie gras.

Suitable for drinking, with great ageing potential, over 15 years.
