Tasting Notes Drink: 

The Viña La Playa estate occupies some of Colchagua Valley`s most desirable acreage, benefitting from its own unique micro-climate due to the Tinguirrica and Limarí rivers which run through the vineyards. The Sutil family, who make superb modern fruit-driven wines from grapes sourced entirely from the estate, developed this rich, golden yellow Chardonnay, which offers fresh tropical fruit aromas of papaya, pineapple and mango, combined with floral and honeyed notes and ripe citrus fruits. It is a fresh, medium-bodied wine with a good structure, balanced by a pleasant and crisp acidity.

Pair with: Milder bries, blues, crumblies, and contrasts well with smoked cheeses.

Our Perfect Cheeseboard: Devon Blue, Cornish Yarg, Smokey Duke, Clare’s Pineapple Chutney, Peter’s Yard Pink Peppercorn, Honey Roasted Almonds.
