Le Baron Chardonnay

BCH B

A rich and creamy barrel fermented Chardonnay

This premium wine is made from grapes hand-picked from 25-30 year-old Chardonnay vines on some of our best parcels of land giving concentrated flavours and minerality. Fermented in a combination of new and old 400 litre French oak barrels, each with a different yeast, adds extra complexity to the wine and allows our Head Winemaker to select only from the best barrels to create a wine to rival the world’s best Chardonnays.

Ready to drink now this wine will continue to improve in bottle for several years.
