MATUA CHARDONNAY 750ML$13.99 – $160.00Select options
Chardonnay is one of Chris’ favourite wines as it’s a variety that you can really get creative with. Where you grow it and what you do with it in winemaking makes all the difference in the bottle. Giving Chardonnay the cool-climate Marlborough treatment creates quite a drop. We’re talking fresh and crisp flavours from white stonefruit to citrus lightly seasoned with oak to finish things off. Perfect!

CHURCH ROAD CHARDONNAY 750ML$17.99 – $205.00Select options
Church road chardonnay’s have undergone a quiet evolution in the last few years, trending away from what we would call the ‘old fashioned new world’ style with lashings of opulent tropical fruit and oak, to something far more serious and complex. A versatile and food friendly wine ideally suited to traditional chardonnay matches including seafood and poultry and light game dishes particularly where an element of creaminess, such as beurre blanc sauce is included in the dish. However the wine is also elegant enough to be appreciated as an aperitif or to match with lighter, fresher flavoured seafood dishes. A great chardonnay for the warmer summer months.
