Sirch Winery's Approach to Viticulture: The winery's philosophy revolves around minimal intervention and respect for the natural qualities of the grape, producing wines that are authentic representations of their origin. The Cladrecis Chardonnay, one of their notable wines, exemplifies this approach, showcasing the elegant and nuanced expression of Chardonnay in this region.

2018 Vintage and Regional Influence: The 2018 vintage of the Sirch Cladrecis Chardonnay reflects the distinctive climatic conditions of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, known for its cool climate and varied soil types. These factors contribute to the development of Chardonnay grapes with a balance of ripeness, acidity, and mineral complexity. 

Appearance: Presents a vibrant golden color, suggesting richness and depth.

Aroma: The bouquet is a complex blend of ripe citrus, green apple, and pear, with a touch of vanilla and a hint of minerality, indicative of the region's soil composition.

Taste: On the palate, the wine reveals a harmonious interplay of fruit flavors and subtle oak influence. It features notes of lemon, melon, and a touch of peach, complemented by a creamy texture and a crisp, mineral-laden finish.

Finish: The finish is long and satisfying, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit and a refined minerality that speaks to the wine's origins and the quality of the vintage.

Food Pairings:

  1. Kingfish Crudo with Onion Jam, Shallots, Chive, Sesame, Chilli Aioli, XO Oil, and Citrus Dressing: The Chardonnay's crisp acidity and fruit complexity will beautifully complement the delicate flavors of the kingfish, while its creamy texture will enhance the dish's aromatic and citrus components.

  2. Shrimp and Scallop Tortellini with Napoli Butter Sugo, Sage, Baby Swiss Chard, and Chilli Shallot Oil: The wine's balance of fruitiness and minerality will enhance the richness of the seafood, providing a refreshing contrast to the butter sugo and aromatic herbs.
