TROPHY WINNER: 2016 vintage  United States Wine Producer; International Wine & Spirit Competition 2017

Best Buy Winestate magazine 90 points 2017 vintage

We tried this recently in a Chardonnay line up of 5 different Chardonnays, French, Kiwi and this came up trumps!

Gnarly Head Chardonnay is crafted using grapes from specially selected vineyards in Lodi and Monterey. All of the grapes are harvested in the early morning hours so they remain cool before being delivered immediately to the winery to be pressed off the skins and racked into fermenters. After fermentation, twenty-five percent of the Chardonnay underwent malolactic fermentation to add a lush, round texture to the wine. Each lot is aged separately to add depth and complexity to the final Chardonnay blend.

This is a succulent, full-bodied wine that explodes with bright citrusy aromas of lemon zest, honeydew melon and attractive toasty oak. Big bold flavours of citrus and apple with a touch of vanilla, wonderfully complemented by creamy mouthfeel, making it so easy to enjoy.

Try this with a fish pie or Carbonara
