The vintage rolls over and the wheels keep turning on this incredibly popular Californian Chardonnay. A big, opulent, oaky and buttery wine, very much "Old School” and unashamedly styled for those of you searching for those blockbusters from the ‘80s. Yep, this is it, a Chardonnay that simply oozes flavour with tropical fruits and sweet pear amongst crème brulée and buttered toast notes. Great drinking and stunning value for lovers of a more decadent Chardonnay.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"We created Harken Chardonnay because we missed that rich, oaky taste of Chardonnays gone by. At some point, someone decided that those great toasty notes and buttery finish went out of style. We think that’s crazy. So we brought it back. Honouring the days when things were done right–including the art of winemaking.

Harken Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented to create a rich Chardonnay exhibiting a classic profile of tropical fruit and Bosc pear alongside warm oak aromatics. The luscious palate suggests crème brulée and buttered toast, and finishes with fresh acidity."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"It's instantly appealing on the nose showing mango, baked fig, vanilla and cedar characters with a seductive butterscotch undertone. The palate displays excellent weight and power, combined with creamy mouthfeel and mellow acidity, finishing long and opulent. At its best: now to 2024."


91/100 & Gold Medal, Tastings.com, August 2020 (2019 Vintage)
2020 World Value Wine Challenge – Top 10 Best Value US Chardonnay
"Roasted aromas and flavours of warm pineapple upside down cake, herb roasted nuts, blonde tobacco. And ginger snaps with a satiny, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and a sleek, captivating, medium-long finish imparting notes of caramel apple with fine, fruit tannins and light oak flavour. A spot on, old school California Chardonnay that hits all the fruity and toasty oak notes"

  • 5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
