Frontrunner for “Best Buttery Chardonnay Buy of 2022”

Kahurangi have cracked the code for making rich, buttery, complex Reserve quality Chardonnay from Old Moutere Vines. Below comparative quality Reserve pricing at $28.00, we’re going deep at $23.99.

All the stars were aligned for this mainly Mendoza clone Chardonnay grown on old vines situated mostly on the Moutere Clays. A cool spring moderated flowering reducing yields by 35%... consequently increasing character and concentration. The beautifully ripe, rich fruit is seductively layered with vanilla, brioche, toast, and melted butter derived from great winemaking and 100%-barrel fermentation for 11-months in French and American oak barriques. The detectable result... a rich, creamy, buttery, and delicious experience.

Our 5 Star review…
Seductive aromas of butter lathered on toast, peach, vanilla, and brioche. A golden flavoured, creamy experience... peach, toast, brioche, vanilla spice, and buttered sweetcorn. Chardonnay for those who love it creamy and rich with more complexity and sophistication. Enjoy with fatty seafoods, roast pork or chicken. Or simply enjoy by itself… now through 2026-2029.

5 Star review of Cameron Douglas Master Sommelier… RRP from $27.99
Complex, fresh and varietal with a mix of new and aged French barrel, flavours on the palate of nectarine and peaches, some caramelised red apple and fresh fig. Barrel flavours of vanilla and white smoke… Balanced, well made and long, a lovely wine with best drinking from 2022 through 2029. 94 Points - Excellent

A Cellar Door bargain at $28.00... there is no wrong time to drink this “Buttery & Sophisticated” Reserve Old Vine Moutere Chardonnay. The only wrong thing you could do would be to not stock up on this “Buttery Beauty” for less than comparative quality Reserve Chardonnay pricing, at our “Deep Cut” price of $23.99.

Enjoy, Jeff
