Fine Wine Delivery are increasingly being presented with below cost deals on surplus stocks of very high profile... and strong emerging wine brands. Producers whose wines normally sell through every vintage... in some cases before the next vintage release. This exciting 100% Mendoza Clone hand harvested 2018 Chardonnay undergoes indigenous yeast fermentation... malolatic fermentation to enhance its palate richness and stirring on lees in fine French Oak barrels for 12-months... Reserve quality from go to whoa. This is generational winemaking... the current generation reinventing his fathers famous pioneering Marlborough label. This 2nd generation winery has become a popular emerging brand heavily invested in.

A serious treat for lovers of high-quality buttery Chardonnay where the aging has been done for you... just enjoy over the next 12-months.


Luscious aromas of creamed corn, brioche, butterscotch and mealy nuances, hints of dried straw with notes of toasted sourdough lathered with butter.


Those same flavours of wheat biscuits, meal, and sweetcorn, persist on the palate interwoven with a creamy, leesy mid-palate texture with added excitement of subtle savoury complexities before culminating in a richly buttery finish buoyed by refreshing lemon zest. These elements combined with attractive bottle aging, result in a delicious drinking Chardonnay for now through 2023 – also perfect with ethically caught Marlborough seafood or white meats, and vegetarian dishes.
