Best Wine on this week's MENU. South Hill King of the Hill Chardonnay 2015

The King of the Hill is a single barrel 2015 Chardonnay made for Kevin King by winemaker Matthew van Heerden (previously of Uva Mira, now at Grande Provence). It is made from best terroir Elgin grapes

Vanilla and jasmine nose with cooked apple. Clean zingy citrus flavours followed by apricot and more apple; it has a silky texture, with the wood showing full on the end with Seville marmalade. It can take time. Definitely a food wine, it matched the Seafood marinara so well.
