     PAIRING NOTES
    Mushroom Pizza Omelette
    Mason Road Chenin Blanc is a zesty, fresh and vibrant chenin with a lengthy finish of dried apricot, pear and honey that  balances a little residual sugar with bright acidity. The acidity compliments the rich omelette and umami mushrooms. This versatile wine is incredibly food-friendly and well-balanced with a creamy round texture and a lingering aftertaste. The balance of flavours in the omelette work perfectly with its crispness.
