The official stuff
Beautifully crafted Chardonnay/Chenin Blanc Still White Wine from South Africa. <0.5% ABV
Produced using 98% Chardonnay and 2% Chenin Blanc grapes harvested from dry-land farmed vineyards in the Western Cape region. The vineyards are strategically planted on south-west facing slopes to capture cool breezes from the Atlantic Ocean and cold Benguela current. Deep soils from decomposed granite, clay rich, with good drainage.
With 14 days fermentation at 14-15°C, the grapes and juice are handled reductively to prevent oxidation and lock in fruitiness. The wine is left on lees for 2 months to add complexity. The wine is then dealcoholised by way of a gently spun cone technology. This is done under vacuum and at low temperature to ensure that the wine retains its distinctive body, colour and flavour.

Why it's worthy
Thomson & Scott are well-known for their excellent sparklers. They released their first still red - the Noughty Rouge - last year and this new white wine is a worthy stablemate.
What you'll taste
Pronounced citrus, blossom and yellow apple aroma, with a hint of honeysuckle and jasmine. The palate is clean and elegant, with a well-balanced mouthful of green apple flavours.
The perfect pairing
Serve chilled with a fish dish, soft cheese, or spicy foods like and Indian or Thai meal.
The pleasant surprise
This fabulous new Noughty wine comes from South Africa
