Ashbourne Sauvignon Blanc Chardonnay2017, 750 ml

An interesting blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Chardonnay.

The nose is initially shy but with some aeration opens up offering a touch of the Sauvignon Blanc’s herbal tones over light citrus and white peach fruit on nose.

The palate is far more expressive than the nose, the Chardonnay giving broadness and body while the Sauvignon Blanc contributes the wine’s light herbal component as well as citrus fruit flavors.

The palate has good vibrancy with exceptional fruit purity.

Clean pear and light peach fruit spreads out nicely across the mid palate with some citrus and kiwi fruit tones giving this linear edginess and drive.

This is rich yet chiseled with bright acidity giving lift and focus to fruit.

This finishes long and clean with a light spice component working through on the finish.

Pair this with oysters or other shell fish, or just drink it on its own.

It’s one of those wines that offers impeccable balance that will allow you to drink it on it’s own or have with lighter food.
