Description

A great year for Chardonnay, weather conditions were super with excellent grapes harvested under ideal conditions! Missionvale Chardonnay is characterised by its seamless palate mouth feel and abundantly rich pronouncement on the palate. All domain grapes now handsomely displayed on the label as “Estate Wine”. The tradition of 30% new barrels has been maintained with a total of seven months in French Oak. This bottling shows a youthful feel from a great vintage expressing fine intensity and a long, mouth- watering finish. Loads of honey and peach flavours, all supported by the excellent classic cooperage supplied by Tonnellerie Meyrieux of Nuits St George.

Rabbit And Mustard

Perfect to enjoy with rabbit and wholegrain mustard sauce...

Rabbit, Hare, Woodpigeon and Duck are examples of “medium” meats that are lighter in colour and have less of a gamey flavour compared to darker meats. The classic dish of Rabbit with wholegrain mustard sauce matches superbly with a good, buttery Chardonnay such as this one from South Africa. This has enough acidity to cut through the creaminess of the sauce, and enough richness to balance out the mustard, avoid anything too tropically in this instance as to avoid over-powering the dish.
