About the wine

Sam's elegant, rich Chardonnay is an Australian masterpiece
  • This first-rate Aussie Chard is layered with fresh fruit flavors like juicy peach and apple, plus a touch of oaky spice and a rich, creamy mouthfeel that carries on through a long, luxurious finish.
  • When a hail storm smashed through the vineyard and ripped the vines to shreds, Sam jumped in and picked this primo Chardonnay to help the grower before the fruit went to waste. “I'm really pleased with the wine,” Sam says, “and take extra pride in what our team did to get as much fruit in as possible.”
  • Thanks to you, Sam never had to hesitate when this grower was in need – and you get a world-class Chardonnay with a huge savings to boot. When you fund one-of-a-kind winemakers like Sam, everyone wins!

Best before
This is a drink-now wine, which also has the ability to age for 1-2 years.

Serving advice
I think 53-57ºF is a good drinking temperature for this wine. If it's too cold, the flavors get shut down. So if you have time, pull it out of the fridge half an hour before drinking to let it warm up a little from the fridge.

Food match
I guess you could call this a full-bodied Chardonnay, but in my mind it is more medium-bodied. This medium weight makes it an easy sipper while cooking dinner. Then it can move to the table with lighter dishes such as grilled fish, or a favorite of mine - Vietnamese chicken salad.

Meet the winemaker - Sam Plunkett

  • Sam is one of our Australian All-Stars. He garnered lots of attention as the award-winning winemaker at Plunkett Fowles.
  • But Plunkett Fowles hit rough waters and Sam wasn't sure he'd be able to stay in the wine business...until he became Angel funded. Angel support has put his startup on the map.
  • Now Sam is off to the races, with the same dedication to quality winemaking that won so many accolades at Plunkett Fowles and none of the bother about sales or marketing.
