DRY WHITE WINE

Kasteel Genoels-Elderen CHARDONNAY BLAUW

A clear bright medium golden yellow color. A summer bouquet of buttercups and ripe yellow plums and apples with a toasty touch. A extraordinary elegant, fruity and fresh dry white wine with flavors of honey, fresh pineapple, apple and impressions of butter, but besides yellow fruit it has a fine refreshing finish.

This elegant dry wine pairs well with crustacean like lobster or crayfish, most fish preparations and asian cuisine.

All our wines are bottled at the Castle and are for sale as supplies last.
