NEW SMALL BATCH RESERVE CHARDONNAY IS GRAND INDEED.


North Canterbury Champions Mount Brown Estate, like to keep things simple with only two tiers to their range - the Estate wines and the Grand Reserve. The Estate range offers exceptional value for money - unrivaled in our humble opinions. And the Reserve range, aptly named is, well quite frankly Grand! The only problem with it to date is that there's never been a Chardonnay in the range ... UNTIL NOW!


This exciting new release from the simply superb 2020 vintage has burst onto the scene and captured the eye of all our top critics, with outstanding scores between 95 and 97 out of 100. This show-stopper wine has been lovingly crafted using their finest clones from low-yielding, gravelly soils. Hand-picked, pristine grapes were gently pressed direct to barrel for a cool fermentation, followed by a secondary malolactic fermentation, and left to age for 15 months in 100% French Barriques. With a tiny production of fewer than 150 cases, we've been able to secure 28 dozen for this spectacular release offer!


Aromatic white peach and nectarine, cinnamon and nutmeg, with toasted hazelnuts and a hint of flint waft from the glass. And on the palate, there's a sublime balance between youthful freshness, and concentrated full-bodied flavours. The ripe stone fruit is combined artfully with notes of vanilla and exotic toasted spice. Its creamy texture and salivating acidity make for a delicious finish.


It's certainly a grand entrance for the first-ever Grand Reserve Chardonnay, but get in quick there's only 28 dozen at our limited release offer of just $26.99 ONLY WHILE STOCKS LAST!

Description

Mount Brown’s first ever Grand Reserve Chardonnay, and what a stunner! Made from Mount Brown’s best Chardonnay clones, extremely low yielding on gravelly soils, the grapes were hand-picked and pressed directly to barrel for a cool fermentation, followed up by MLF. Maturation was completed in barrel (100% French oak barriques) for 15 months. Less than 150 dozen made and Fine Wine Delivery has managed to grab a tiny allocation of 28 dozen. Get in now, before they evaporate!

Smells

Focused aromas of white peaches and nectarines, cinnamon and nutmeg, with toasted hazelnuts and a hint of flint.

Tastes

Youthful and fresh, but full-bodied and very more-ish. Stonefruit coalesces with toasted spice and vanilla notes to tantalize the tastebuds, while the creamy texture and salivating acidity ensure the finish is leisurely and very enjoyable. Drinking superbly now, but will age beautifully until 2028. Enjoy with soft cheeses and white meats.
