Jamsheed Harem Madame Chardonnay 2016Jamsheed
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Australia
GRAPE VARIETAL: Chardonnay
Complex, mineral laden, savoury. The three words that jostle with the ripe apple and faint citrus fruit characters. Some will find the yeasty, nutty characters a touch much in their chardonnay, but then there will be those who kowtow to this buttery, wild, quite rich and yet satisfying expression. It’s arrogantly at the other end of what Australia’s ‘fine wine canon’ for chardonnay is now (linear, racy, skeletal), and we love it for that.
Recommended Food Pairing: Roast chicken with honey-sesame marinade; mushroom dishes; mild curries with buttery sauces; fish pie or fish baked in cream sauce; chicken/pork/pasta in creamy sauce; shellfish with butter or creamy sauces; butternut squash risotto; caesar salad; creamy vegetable soups; camembert cheese.
