MAJOR PRICE DROP ON TOP SELLER, GOLD MEDAL CALIFORNIAN CHARDONNAY
GOLD MEDAL | Mundus Vini Spring Tasting 2023
GOLD MEDAL | Sakura Japan Women’s Wine Awards
FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim Wine Orbit "supple texture and creamy mouthfeel... finishing long and flavoursome"
From Monterey, a slightly cooler sub-region of California, comes this delightful, Gold Medal winning chardonnay. It takes all the things that we love in Cali Chardy and turns them up a notch; toasty caramel notes, buttery characters and creamy mouthfeel all meld seamlessly and the result is a truly delicious glass of wine.
Grapes are left on the vine slightly longer than normal and are picked when the balance between acidity and fruit ripeness is absolutely perfect. The grapes are pressed immediately after harvest and then fermentation occurs in a combination of stainless steel tanks and French and American Oak barrels to add body and complexity.
If you're a fan of American Chardonnay and are looking for your new favourite, you've just found it.
The winery writes "The 446 Chardonnay exhibits vibrant aromas of pineapple, yellow peach, vanilla and toasted oak. This medium-bodied wine is balanced, showcasing a creamy mid-palate and crisp acidity. Bright flavors of mango, kiwi and honeydew melon are supported by hints of lemon zest and cinnamon butter."
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Generously styled and immediately appealing on the nose with grilled stone fruit, pineapple, fig and vanillin oak characters with a light touch of mixed spice. The palate delivers supple texture and creamy mouthfeel well framed by mellow acidity, finishing long and flavoursome. At its best: now to 2026."
