Panilonco Chardonnay 2011
DO Colchagua Valley, Chile $11.95 13.5% alcohol
Aromas of tropical fruit, green apple and floral notes waft from this well-balanced long-finishing gem. Fresh and lively on the palate, there’s a persistent wash of fruit-forward flavour with ripe orchard fruit, zesty lemon pie filling and hints of persimmon. It’s medium bodied and nicely textured sporting a mouth-watering aftertaste. The price-quality balance tips in your favour. Order by the case delivered to your home or office from Nokhrin Wines.

Pour alongside supermarket take-out rotisserie chicken and roast potatoes. Order by the case delivered to your home or office from Nokhrin Wines. (Vic Harradine)
