Planeta Chardonnay 2017 | Magnum (150cl)

Planeta Chardonnay has become one of the iconic white wines of Sicily. The vineyards in Ulmo and Maroccoli are unique for their aspect and terroir and the fermentation and ageing in French oak delivers a wine unique for its grace and power.

A single varietal Chardonnay is a surprisingly soft white wine underlaid by a refreshing acid vein. A slight mineral suggestion combines harmoniously with the flavour of ripe yellow peaches, acacia honey and marzipan and with some peaty, cereal and toasted aromas which precede the powerful balanced finish.
