In Stock & Ready To Ship!

As a dedicated Chardonnay lover I welcomed the news that demand for good Aussie Chardonnay was on the rise again. Let's hope it's the start of something massive.

The label of this wine reflects word-of-mouth with a bunch of hipster types sharing the news of the next big thing, a real vineyard find, proper stuff with bags of varietal appeal but lovely texture too. Aussie Chardonnay is making a comeback and this is a cracking wine to start the revolution!

With the faintest whiff of biscuity oak this bright, tangy Barossa Valley Chardonnay is an absolute delight. It has that classical Barossa charm, elegance, poise, tang and naggingly more-ish elusive something-or-other which makes one wonder why there isn't more good Australian Chardonnay.

Pair this with chicken, pork, prawns or seafood. Brilliant as a quaffer or perfect with a lovingly cooked meal.

Australia

In 1873 French judges, tasting blind, praised wines from Australia, but withdrew when the provenance was revealed, saying that wines of that quality must clearly be French. Vines have been grown successfully in Australia since the 1820s as European settlers realised that the Mediterranean climate was ideal for viticulture.

Chardonnay

One of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay is made in a wide range of styles from lean, sparkling Blanc de Blancs to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak.

Depending on how ripe the grapes get, the flavour ranges from crisp, clean citrus and green apple, to ripe peaches and tropical fruit. Notable Chardonnays can be found in France, California, Australia, England, and beyond.

    The oak intergration on this Chardonnay is perfect. Touch of butter but really restrained with fruits at centre stage!
