"A toasty, buttery bottle of goodness"

"A spot on, old school California Chardonnay that hits all the fruity and toasty oak notes"

“This buttery, rich, supple wine really pours on the dairy flavours and baking spices.”

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 (2021 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, January 2023 (2021 Vintage)
"Richly opulent and gorgeously expressed, the wine shows grilled stone fruit, pineapple, vanilla and cedary oak characters with a lovely touch of butterscotch. The palate delivers succulent fruit intensity together with plush texture and creamy mouthfeel, finishing impressively long and satisfying. At its best: now to 2026."

#2 Top 100 Best Buy 2022 Wine Enthusiast, USA (2020 Vintage)
"This full bodied wine leads with bold new-oak aromas of grilled bread, wood char and butter, followed by luscious, ripe pear and vanilla flavours accented with toasted almond. It's an unapologetic, barrel fermented wine that gives a lot of pleasure."
