$99 Chardonnay Collection
Cracka Value Rating
The best Chardies are bloody delicious white wines, and today we've coupled together a couple of real charmers in one Chardonnay mixed case!
Featuring six different wines - 2 bottles of each - this $99 Chardonnay Collection includes such tipples as the Cosmo Yarra Valley Chardonnay (a delicious Yarra white from an winemaking lecturer), an aged Fleurieu Peninsula Chardonnay from McLaren Vale producer Madeleines and a 92 point Chardonnay released for Harley Davidson's 110th anniversary.
That's just the start of the fine vino in this pack, with wines from De Bortoli, Karatta and Amadio also in the mix. It's hard to argue with value like this!
This case features:
2x 2009 Madeleines Hidden Talent Fleurieu Chardonnay (90 points Tony Keys)
Medium green straw appearance. Slightly nutty developed aromas, aged sweet varietal fruit flavours of white peach, creamy soft palate.
2x 2015 Cosmo Yarra Valley Chardonnay
Apples and peach with some secondary nutty/cashew aromas coming through (from the oak). Spice and nuts from the oak carry the light fruit notes. Some tannins are evident from the oak, but these are balanced by the sweet fruit flavours and modest acid.
2x 2009 Madeleines Years of Freedom Fleurieu Chardonnay (92 points Tony Keys)
A cool climate Chardonnay from our single vineyard on the maritime Fleurieu Peninsula. This wine was made for long term maturation with restrained delicate characters coupled with careful bottle ageing in our cool cellars. Finely crafted Chardonnay with aromas of herbal.
2x 2016 Grand Royale South Australian Chardonnay
This is a lovely, rich Chardonnay from one of Australia's finest Chardonnay producing regions. Peach and melon aromas lead to a full-flavoured palate that displays citrus and peach-like fruit flavours. The finish is fresh and dry.
2x 2016 De Bortoli Scarlett's Brook Chardonnay
Peach and melon notes carried on a creamy texture, fresh acidity and some mineral grip on the finish.
2x 2016 Karatta House Robe Chardonnay
The wine has a bright straw yellow appearance, with a fresh tropical and citrus fruit refreshing aroma; on the palate delicious flavours of apricots, melons and nectarines evolve with hints of toasty French oak.
