Giaconda Estate Vineyard Chardonnay

Giaconda wines have a super-cult status and, given the tiny production, are extremely difficult to find; they are sold chiefly through restaurants and by mail order. All have a cosmopolitan edge befitting Rick Kinzbrunner’s international winemaking experience.
A freak wine and one of Australia’s greatest Chardonnay, especially for this vintage. Rick’s Chardonnay has a stuck match complexity and texture that reminds of the best wines of Chassagne-Montrachet.
