About this wine

Made in a beautiful, weighted way, Stanley’s Reserve Chardonnay is a single vineyard release from the famed Awatere Valley in Marlborough. The 2017 vintage has a softly concentrated nose with well packed white peach, citrus fruit and toffee aromas melded harmoniously with complexing flint and mineral elements, nuts and a creamy barrel ferment
note. Medium to full bodied, the mouthfeel has weight and viscosity, the palate flowing along a smooth, near creamy line. A fine phenolic thread and lacy acidity balances the fruit and barrel-ferment richness, and the wine carries to a slender, lingering dry finish with a hint of vanilla pod. This is a well-concentrated, medium weight Chardonnay with nutty, white peach and white chocolate flavours, and a creamy, fine-textured line.

Ageing potential: Will age perfectly over the next 5+ years

    string(513) "Possibly the most famous grape variety in the world, Chardonnay has found a home in pretty much every corner of the wine world. From crisp, flinty Chablis styles to full-bodied, oaky, rich Napa Valley Chardonnay it is a variety which has the ability to morph according to the climate or winemaking philosophy. It also has the capacity to produce amongst the greatest white wines in the world. Some praise indeed for this chameleon variety, the likes of which may only truly be matched by Riesling or Chenin Blanc."
