Heemskerk 2014 Abel’s Tempest Chardonnay - Tasmania

HERE'S a Chardonnay that's equally at home
with Chicken Dijon or a cold seafood platter.

ONE TO NOTE:  HEEMSKERK Wines brought together fruit from cool climate vineyards in the Coal River and Derwent Valleys of Tasmania's south to create their very flavoursome 2014 Abel's Tempest Chardonnay.

Reflecting just how well Chardonnay does in such cool conditions, this rewarding drop has generous flavours underpinned by lemon/citrus fruit and subtle oak, yet still remains quite soft and elegant.

Pay $25 and pair with Chicken Dijon as a hot main course, or with a cold seafood platter of oysters, prawns, spanner crab and smoked salmon.

The Abel's Tempest label is named after the violent winds that hammered Dutchman Abel Tasman and almost thwarted his discovery and landing on Tasmania in 1642.
