I don't think we can really shout loudly enough about how much we love this wine. One of the most exciting Australian Chardonnays we have ever tasted.


Tasting Notes

Ah, the good old days. When you could buy a case of Chateau Margaux, a mews house in Kensington, a Hillman Imp and still have change for a yacht. We can't take you back to those giddy times, but we may have found a cult wine in its its infancy and we may all look back with envious hindsight on 2014 as the year when you could buy BK Wines Swaby Chardonnay for £26 a bottle. This is the Chardonnay that Australia has always promised to make. It's the wine that Jean-Marc Roulot would have made if his vineyards were in the Adelaide Hills. A stunning wine, brimming with excitement and intrigue. It's tense and thrilling, yet rich and satisfying.


Press Note:

"Gleaming green-yellow; whole bunch pressed to 30% new French puncheons, balance two- to three-year-old barriques; nine months stirring, 12 months in oak; no acid adjustment, yet 100% malolactic fermentation."
