Description

A very ripe and "Californian style" of Chardonnay, everything about Church Road Grand Reserve is turned up to 11. A beautiful vanilla-scented bouquet bursting with stonefruits, toasty oak and pineapple, the palate is a luxurious parade of creamy and nutty flavours building towards a mouth-watering finish. Not a hair out of place in this 2019 vintage, the elegant, savoury, biscuity notes elevate it to a level we haven't seen before. Enjoy in its youth or cellar through 2025.

Smells

Tantalising vanilla bean and freshly baked bread crust, with peach, nectarine, pineapple and toasty French oak.

Tastes

Gorgeously creamy with hints of creme brulee, caramel and peach cobbler, there is a lovely saline, mineral note to keep all the decadence at bay, a fresh acid line carrying a long, nuanced finish. A sensational Church Road Grand Reserve that is as good or better than anything they've ever made - serve this iconic wine with good food and good company between now and 2025.

I was disappointed in this wine. To me more like a $20 bottle of wine.
