2019 Fat Bastard Chardonnay
The Fat Bastard brings welcome relief to those looking for a bigger, fuller style of Chardonnay amidst the current market trend of lighter, fresher and more elegant styles. Filling a gap in the market and delivering incredible value for money has made this our best selling Chardonnay over the last 5 years.
Brilliant pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Opulent scents of ripe peach, apricot and honeycomb engulf the olfactory senses trailed by creme brulee, bacon fat and spice. Rich and creamy, the toasty oak in this release is a little more prominent than past vintages. Luscious peach and apricot fruits meld into notions of crème brulee, nougat and spicy bacon fat characters. Warm and toasty with excellent concentration, it shows ample length and finishes rich and buttery.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
