Pair it with a wooded Chardonnay. It is one of the white Burgundy varietals, and is usually used in sparkling wines. Due to quarantine restrictions, Chardonnay vine cuttings were often smuggled into South Africa in the 1970s and 1980s and many times were misidentified as to what grape variety it really was. A wooded Chardonnay brags a rich texture. A sweet bouquet, characterised by notes of vanilla and butterscotch. A creamy, buttery taste, characterised by hazelnut, honey, and caramel.
