Not too cool! Above 10 degrees, let me out of the fridge half an hour before pouring me.

Charlotte Hardy has been making wines for 15 years, with a star-studded career at Craggy Range (NZ), Chateau Giscours (Bordeaux) and David Abreu (California), but has called SA home since 2007. Her winery is part of her Basket Range house, which has been through many incarnations since starting life as a pig farm in 1858. Much later it housed the Basket Range store, and at different times in the past two decades it has been the winery to Basket Range Wines,The Deanery Wines and now Charlotte Dalton Wines.

If you get to compare me in your glass with the Tapanappa Chardonnay, you’ll see we both look quite similar. A dark shade of a pale lemon. It is even quite safe to say we come from a similar terroir, in the Adelaide Hills, and we both have been oaked.

Now if you smell my bouquet, light stone fruit, apples and citrus notes, you will, at first find me a tad restrained. But don’t be fooled, let me breathe in your glass for a couple of minutes, provided that I am not too cold when poured, and then BAAAM! Mesmerizing. I evolved into something much more complex and fragrant. Just like that! Suddenly those apples aren’t freshly picked but baked, ripe pears arrive along with delicate white flowers and hints of caramel.

First things first; I am a dry white wine. Not to brag but I am gentle and elegant. Not to acidic, with flavour of Mirabelle-plums, honeysuckle, peaches, butterscotch and light bread dough with a toasty and buttery finish. A very fine texture.

As I am very subtle and concentrated, you don’t want any food to overpower such delicate flavours. A simple cod filet, with peas and butter would seem like a good idea. Some roasted poultry, simply seasoned with onions and potatoes, as well as a fennel crumble with a touch of grated parmesan on top… Or just on its own, because it’s pure delishhhhh.
