Outrageously good Chard, ridiculously low price. 96/100 from Bob Campbell. The 2012 vintage was voted world’s top Chardonnay outside Burgundy by Decanter magazine -- a hard act to follow, but later vintages have been even better. The 2016 delivers again: rich and opulent as always, yet silky and refined with a palpable sense of pedigree and layering. Whether drinking or cellaring, this is a must for serious Chardy lovers.

Overview

Chardonnay

Its Origins

Free-draining soils, hot summers and long, dry autumns make Martinborough the perfect region for growing traditional cool-climate wines. Founded in 1980, Martinborough Vineyard was a trailblazer in the region and the first to plant the variety for which the region is best known, Pinot Noir. MV now lay claim to the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the district. Since the first vintage was released by pharmacist-turned-winemaker Russell Schultz in 1984, they have consistently produced world-class wines from the home block, Martinborough Terraces blocks, and more recently, the Burnt Spur vineyards. A big move towards organic/sustainable vineyards is currently in place.

What The Critics Say

96/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Ripe, white stone fruit with subtle oak aromas intrigue the nose. On the palate, the wine is concentrated, balanced and offers a buttery complexity that leads to a lingering finish."
