Lowe Tinja Chardonnay Verdelho 2013

This wine has a couple of angles - first, it uses the unloved verdelho to blend with chardonnay and second, it is produced with "no added preservatives" which I assume means that sulphur dioxide, which is used as a preservative and antibacterial agent, hasn't been added to the wine.  Some claim allergies to sulphur dioxide, and the wine is quite low in alcohol at 11.1% for those who suffer from the more obvious problem of drinking too much wine, so I guess the wine meets a couple of demographics.  The result?  The wine is quite aromatic - mostly spiced pears and apple, with some lemon and hay notes too.  Certainly of interest.  The palate is simpler and tastes fresh and clean, reminding of spiced pear compote.  It finishes quite short, but is simple and pleasant.  Acceptable
