$312.00 inc. GST

The festive season is bearing down upon us and the long summer days are almost here! To celebrate, Montague Estate have put together this amazing deal on their Pax Reserve Chardonnay to help ring in the new year. The bouquet is delicately lifted with jasmine and nashi pear, supported by just a sniff of toasty almond and biscotti. On the palate, a quiet suggestion of pie crust oversees hints of lime and grapefruit pith, honeydew melon and white stone fruit.

VINIFICATION

Serving Temperature: 12-14°C Food Pairing: Roasted trout, Poached salmon, or Mushroom and goats cheese risotto.
