White Wine

Backsberg Kpm Chardonnay 2011, W.O., Paarl, South Africa: Generous oak treatment gives this white a robust, smoky aroma and flavour. Some tree fruit on the mid-palate with more toasty oak on the finish. Luscious, round and dry with lots of mouth-watering juiciness for a range of dishes from seafood to salads. Pair with: grilled salmon, chicken breast, potato cakes, French onion soup, breaded veal cutlets. Drink: 2012-2015. 156661 13.50% D 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 89/100.
