A true expression of Chardonnay from the iconic Crater Rim brand, this renown buttery Chardonnay is at the best market price. Chardy lover’s rejoice!

This is a rich and textural Chardonnay balanced by ripe acidity. 

Sourced from an estate vineyard in the Waipara Valley, the fruits are hand picked and gently whole bunch pressed before fermentation in new and seasoned French oak barriques. Aged on lees in Barrels for 15 months. 

5 Stars, 94/100, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Gorgeously fruited and impressively composed, the inviting bouquet shows apricot, mango, lemon peel and cedar characters with hints of brioche and vanilla pod. The palate delivers excellent concentration and weight, superbly complemented by velvety texture and multi-layered mouthfeel."
