Seriously luxurious drop from down under

    • The 2017 Dunnolly Estate Reserve Chardonnay is so special. The wine has been elevated to the next level!
    • The nose is a delicate balance of white nectarines & citrus peel, there is an enticing creaminess and warmth coming from the new French Barriques. On the first sip, the palate flourishes showing the natural acid length and a rich encompassing mouthfeel. 
    • Our style of Chardonnay is designed to be subtle. Gentle flavours of apricot & citrus and balanced with a delicate acidity. With the vintage being on the cooler side I needed to ensure that there was still this generosity, without detracting from our signature wine style and pronounced femininity.
    • I made this wine with the Angels in mind.  I wanted to bring a sense of luxury that unfortunately our summer didn’t provide!

Ageing advice
I would cellar for at least six months after release to really enjoy the amalgamation of these beautiful flavours.

Serving advice
Please serve lightly chilled at 8-10°C

Local food match
Normally, I would suggest any of our local Kiwi seafood, scallops in particular but this wine also is stunning with butterflied BBQed chicken, leafy green salad and minted new seasoned potatoes
