2016 Lily White, Liliac, Transylvania, Romania, 75cl, 13%abv


2016 Chardonnay/Sauvignon, Dry, White, Ready but can keep, 13%abv, Transylvania, Romania

A rare field blend of the two classic noble grape varieties that happily perform on their own and hence are very rarely seen together. In this case their sublime balance creates an utterly delicious wine and one should try it to believe me. I don't really care what is inside that bottle if it tastes that good! A great accompaniment to creamy sauces, duck and turkey, salmon and the listt goes on
