    Elegant, focused, but friendly. Green apple and faint sweet dough over the classic mineral chardonnay backbone. Built very solidly with a bigger medium body, but a fine acidity balances that out. This is awesome wine for the price, in a style that is universally enjoyable, finding a balance between the crisper white burgundies and the richer Cali fare.

    We've always ben told that struggle builds character, and in nothing is that more tangible than in wine. Coming from one of the more tumultuous regions in the wine growing world this Otago Chardonnay pays dividends to that theory. The nose is delicate but forward bursting with notes of green apple, jasmine, toast, and honey. The palate is complex but not overly rich. There is a balance of bright fruit, cutting minerality, toasted oak, apple peel, and a floral finish that reminds me of jasmine tea. Once again our DI's stand and deliver at prices that are unmatched for the quality!

    Matt Connell is making some of the best wines to date in Central Otago. Sourced entirely from the Lowburn subregion in Central Otago, where despite being known for New Zealand’s best Pinot Noir, is also the home to exceptional Chardonnay. On the nose there are traces of lime zest and pineapple and brioche, while the palate is where all the fireworks happen. Richly decadent with butter, stone fruit and brioche, this is a master class in exquisitely crafted, robust Chardonnay. Yet for all of it’s layers of flavor, it never seems weighed down, light on its feet with crackling acidity, this is an exceptional, mouth coating Chardonnay the proves the point that Central Otago’s Chardonnay can perform on right on par with it’s Pinot Noir.
