Top drop under $20… Chilean Chardonnay

2016 Chingol Adventurous Bird Chardonnay 12.5% ABV $11.99

3 stars

Chile is home to a diverse range of climates, such as the Valle Central, whers this Chardonnay was grown. It’s a wine that’s all about modern packaging and refreshing, ripe fruit flavours which err more towards the tropical fruit spectrum such as pineapple and notes of mango as well as grapefruit adding a zesty balance and a crispness with moderate acidity providing a lingering finish.

Good quality and outstanding value for money. Great to see the screw cap closure, which provides a high level of consistency to the wine’s freshness.
