Expert review

A complex, deep and captivating nose of white florals, yellow orchard fruits, ripe peach, honey, brioche and lemon curd. This is stunning. On the palate it's rich and juicy with a core of deep fruit, sharpened by an incredible line of acidity and an underlying chalky minerality. It's long and utterly delicious...wowza!

Wine Worth Writing About

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
