White Wine ᐧ France
Les Oliviers Chardonnay
Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay
Named after the olive groves or ‘oliviers’ that flourish around the sun-drenched vineyards of southern France, grapes for these wines come from carefully selected plots of Languedoc old vines. Les Oliviers is a proud varietal range of wines which show exuberance and youth. "In the south-west of France, Gascony has emerged as a specialist producer of fresh white wines which offer finesse and charm. A mixture of silt, sand and alluvial deposits help the soil to drain - ideal conditions for a healthy crop.
Smooth and refined with an underlying twist of freshness and supple, soft, ripe, fruit flavours on the palate, finishing with a squeeze of pithy citrus and candied pineapple.
Best served chilled. Fantastic both with and without food - try it with creamy pasta verde!
