Meiomi Chardonnay is entirely made from Chardonnay grapes.
You’ll perceive sweet aromas of ripe tropical fruit, honey, and baking spices with subtle custard notes.
It’s fermented in stainless and aged in French oak barrels for further depth and roundness.
The result is a velvety mouthfeel with succulent acidity and a mineral-driven finish.

A dry wine contains less than 15 g/L.

Meiomi Chardonnay review: Which food pairs well with it?
Meiomi Chardonnay is a complex, rich yet balanced oaked Chardonnay. We find it pairs very well with strong dish flavors.
Classic appetizers are prosciutto Crudo and pumpkin to name some.
Meat wise go for pork, grilled meat, and roast chicken example.
For fish, we recommend smoked salmon, grilled fish, and crab cakes.
If you are a cheese lover you should try it with cream and triple cream cheeses like Brie and Brillat-Savarin.
Meiomi Chardonnay review: What's its alcohol content?
Meiomi Chardonnay wine’s alcohol content is 13.9%.
In case you wonder about alcohol content or more precisely Alcohol By Volume, i.e. ABV, measure the alcoholic strength of a drink.
There is a direct relationship between the sugar left in the wine after the alcoholic fermentation has taken place, i.e. Residual Sugar or RS, and ABV.
During alcoholic fermentation, the yeast transforms the sugar in the grape juice into alcohol.
Grapes with high residual sugar will therefore produce dry wine with a high ABV.
How many calories are in a glass of Meiomi Chardonnay wine?
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture  a 5-ounce glass will contain about 120 to 130 calories.
Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram. So a wine with high ABV will have a higher calories per glass than a wine with low ABV.
Furthermore, sugar contributes to the calorie count.
A dry wine will usually have 4 calories per grams vs a sweet wine that will have around 20 calories per grams of carbs, which include sugar.
