The Lucky Lizard Chardonnay d’Arenberg
The 2012 Lucky Lizard has vibrant nectarine and white peach on the nose with nutty and mineral citrus undertones.
The palate begins with generous peach and stone fruit. The 25% wild fermentation becomes evident as the wine opens up to reveal a beautifully
textured mid palate with cashew and honeysuckle, finishing with zingy lime and peel.
The wine shows great balance and composure and will drink fantastically with or without food.
Eat with: Grilled chicken, chicken pasta, Turkey, Pheasant.

A flourishing bouquet with flashes of pineapple, pear drop, honey suckle, raw cashew and a hint of seaspray. In youth there is a reasonable volume of fruit, although the palate still manages to appear taught with a sorbet like freshness to the acidity. Flavours err on the savoury side, preserved lemon, spice, cold stone with just a ripple of lemon butter. The finish has a beeswax nature to it but once again the perfectly pitched acidity and slightly saline tail will urge you to take another sip. Fresh and savoury in youth, promising to deliver even greater complexity and texture with time The wine shows great balance and composure and will drink fantastically with or without food.
