The de Mariscos descended from a William de Marisco (approximately AD 1100), who was said to be one of the 35 illegitimate children of King Henry the First - thereby marking him, The King’s Bastard.TASTING NOTE
Alluring aromas of melon, nectarine, citrus and a supporting oak background, create a vibrant nose. Stonefruit and mealy flavours carry through to the palate which are supported by subtle flint and nutty notes from the extended time on lees. Partial malolactic fermentation has helped to soften the palate while the residual acidity leads the wine to a dry, lingering finish.FOOD MATCH
This Chardonnay pairs well with most white meats, pork and seafood. Try it with feta stuffed Chicken breast served with a tabouleh salad.
