Peter Lehmann Wildcard Chardonnay 75cl
The Wildcard wines are named after Sky Masterson, the gambler hero of the musical Guys & Dolls. Peter Lehmann Wines was originally named Masterson Wines between 1977 and 1981, as it was the biggest gamble ever taken by Peter Lehmann and the growers. The wines are soft and forward and easy drinking but still bear the hallmark quality of head winemaker Nigel Westblade and his team. “We buy grapes, not bulk wine, as we can make a much better wine that way,” he says.
Pale straw with a flash of green, the Wildcard Chardonnay shows delicious lifted aromas of lime juice, citrus and passion fruit undertones. This is a vibrant, refreshing style of Chardonnay with zesty citrus and tropical fruit flavours of peach and melon. It is light and crisp on the finish.
