Looks like: Pale golden colour
Smells like: There is just a touch of oak in this wine, not too much! Melons and peaches with a squeeze of grapefruit.
Tastes like: Medium bodied chardonnay that avoids the big oak, but not all together. A nice texture to the wine with
Match with: Roast chicken, chicken salad.
Serious AWBS notes if you need them: Orange is such a great region right now. Lots of great wineries producing beautiful cool climate wines. This is a medium bodied wine.
“The Empress – A Tall bearded Iris I dubbed Café Crème that grows next to the brick and flint wall outside my sunny studio. It is painted onto a gold leaf background using 2 colours of gold (‘Champagne’ and moonlight’!!) to give the feel of a shimmery, fin de siècle ballgown feel…” Sarah Caswell
