Fat Bastard Chardonnay 2018
Total production: 11,818 bottles
‘Tank fermented with an element of the jolly good stuff scientists call quercus fragmentus,’ say the producers (Robertson Winery in collaboration with Thierry & Guy). On the nose, this wine seduces with ripe stone fruit, tropical melon too, and subtle hints of vanilla. There’s good mid-palate fruit intensity, showing some development, an off-dry impression enhanced by vanilla cream oak notes and a mere hint of burnt butter. Bold but well-rounded and balanced. ABV 13%.
