WINE PAIRING OF THE WEEK: Vina San Pedro 1865 Vineyard Chardonnay & Grilled Salmon
Vina San Pedro 1865 Vineyard Chardonnay 2015, Chile
This beautifully crafted 100% Chardonnay hails from Elgui Valley in the north of Chile. With the Pacific Ocean only 25K away, the climate is moderate and perfectly suited for the varietal. Bursting with aromas and flavours of zesty citrus with papaya notes as a great surprise. Creamy, luxurious mouthfeel. Refreshing with crisp acidity due to partial malolactic fermentation and pronounced minerality. Great as an aperitif and perfectly paired with grilled salmon topped with a dollop of creamy sauce. Score: 93/100. Tasted June 2017. LCBO VINTAGES: $ 19.95
A perfectly delicious Summer Lunch!
