Winery Notes (2020 Vintage)
"Gnarly Head Chardonnay raises the bar for this classic varietal. This Chardonnay is a juicy, full-bodied wine that explodes with bright citrusy aromas of lemon zest, honeydew melon and just a hint of toasty oak. Big bold flavours of citrus and apple with a touch of vanilla ensure a perfect match with a range of cuisine, including chicken curry, grilled shrimp and spaghetti carbonara.
Our Gnarly Head Chardonnay is crafted using grapes from specially selected vineyards in Lodi and Monterey. Chardonnay fruit from the Lodi region contributes ripe, rich fruit flavours with a full mouthfeel, while grapes from Monterey add crisp acidity, balanced with vibrant citrus and abundant tropical flavours."

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Gorgeously ripe and inviting, the bouquet shows mango, grilled peach, vanillin oak and butterscotch characters, followed by a beautifully rounded palate delivering silky texture and fleshy mouthfeel. Soothing and comfortingly delicious. At its best: now to 2023."
