With all fruit harvested in the early hours and the juice pressed while the grapes are still cool to help retain aroma and flavour, the care that goes into the FAT bastard Chardonnay is nothing short of fastidious.
The wine is tank fermented with an element of the jolly good stuff scientists call quercus fragmentus, which adds greater weight and complexity. The wine shows classic ripe, rich butter and tropical fruit on the nose and soft, well integrated vanilla on the palate.
Unsurprisingly, the result is a voluptuously delectable wine that is not only fabulous to drink, it continues to win prizes too. A veritable coup of the fattest type.
