2012 Leggiero Un-Oaked Chardonnay
The best Italian Chardonnay hails from the cool climate region of Alto Adige. Almost always made in an un-oaked fashion, it is a wine that expresses the pure minerality of Chardonnay with beautiful acidity and crisp fruit flavours. The 2012 Leggiero offers up a balance of apple, meyer lemon rind and ripe orchard fruit. The palate is harmonious with a great burst of lemon puff and apple on the mid-palate that plays into a medium length mineral infused finish.
Fresh oysters with mignonette and a squeeze of lemon is a no brainer. Steamed mussels in a coconut, ginger & lemongrass broth is another winning combination.
Vegetariano / Vegano
