Squealing Pig Chardonnay
The nose is: salivatingly crisp like a summer saladbursting with juicy pineapple and lemon pith, backed up by melon with notes of walnut and French oak. The palate is practically exploding out of the glass it has so much energyweighty and refreshing, with layers of ripe rock melon, toasted almond and a hint of squeezed lemon. Tangy ripe citrus up front leads to a focused yet textural finish of peach and oak with delicious balance.
This wine is autumn in a bottlegreat in its youth but will age gracefully. Drink straight awaynow to savor the vibrant aromas and liveliness or hold for up to 2 years.
Country: New Zealand
Suggested Food Pairings: The finish is pure and clean, making it a great wine to serve as an aperitif or to cleanse the palate alongside creamy cheeses, roast chicken, or hearty pasta dishes. It’s also a natural match, for anything from: the sea, including fresh oysters, grilled fish, and shrimp.
Squealing Pig is a tale about a pig who wanted more from life than just his pig pen.
Squealing Pig wines are full of: omph, fruit – driven, flavour-packed and best enjoyed young.
Keen on wine, but not a fan of the bore that you get with it, in 2010 they trotted off on an adventure to the Squealing Pig Vineyard in Marlborough, New Zealand, to make Sauvignon Blanc with personality. Eager to experiment with fresh varieties and styles, the pig soon spread their wings south to Central Otago, before globetrotting the world.
No matter where this little pig goes–New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, France, Italy, Spain –the Squealing Pig ethos remains the same: to make cracking wines that are approachable, flavour-packed and pair brilliantly with no-fuss foods. And to have more fun than anyone else doing it.
