Shannon Vineyards - Oscar Browne Chardonnay has a bright, straw-yellow color with a slightly greenish sheen in the glass.
Oscar Browne Chardonnay is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes. Chardonnay is the most important white wine grape variety in the world. The grapes are hand picked and chilled to 3 ° C overnight before pressing takes place. The Chardonnay is stored in French oak barrels for about 11 months.
The winemaker couple Nadia and Gordon Newton Johnson and the owners James and Stuart Downes have a wide range of top wines such as the varietal Shannon Semillon, the Shannon Mount Bullet Merlot and the Shannon Sanctuary Peak Sauvignon.
Shannon Vineyards, whose name is reminiscent of the Irish ancestors of the winery owners, regularly receives prestigious awards and recognitions for its premium and individual wines.
The high and cool Elgin area is nestled in the ancient sandstone Hottentots Holland Mountains.
The region used to be used for growing apples and is now known worldwide for its award-winning wines.
The different microclimate offers an ideal basis for viticulture. Cold winters with high rainfall ensure that the grapes ripen longer in the high elevations of the Elgin area. This has a positive effect on the pH value and the acid balance of wine.
The Shannon Oscar Browne Chardonnay is an elegant, creamy wine with a fine balance of wood and fruit. The taste is soft, aromatic and full-bodied. In the fragrance you will find notes of fine citrus fruits, tangerine and white peach. The aftertaste is rich and well structured.
Drink this Chardonnay chilled at a temperature of 10-12 ° C.
Goes well with seafood, fish (grilled or in sauce) and meat e.g. poultry or juicy steak.
