May means Mother’s Day. But Thursday May 23 is also International Chardonnay Day … something we’re sure mum’s are very happy about! So this month we’re combining the two … and buying mum a bottle or two of fabulous Chardonnay. Groote Post Kapokberg Chardonnay 2017 is a wooded option … you’ll smell orange blossom and lemon zest and taste lashings of butter and gorgeous notes of white stone fruit and pear. It’s the perfect wine to serve with rich, creamy dishes like a butternut soup, poached salmon with a Hollandaise sauce, sage butter chicken, grilled linefish with lemon butter sauce, coronation chicken, grilled crayfish or prawns and butter chicken curry. It is also delicious with crème brûlée or a platter of soft cheeses. Around R182. Details: grootepost.co.za
