Another of my Irish heritage wines!

A great value organically produced Chardonnay from Australia. Fresh and fruity, with no oak influence and low SO2. Easy like a Sunday morning, drink in some of that Ozzy sunshine vibe with this well crafted, delicious Chard. If you like to upgrade, try the Michel Gahier, Arbois Chardonnay ‘Les Folasses’ – it’s a beauty!

More information

Organic sunshine in a bottle. A fresh and lively Chardonnay.

Commonly referred to as the winemaker’s grape owing to both its versatility and ease of manipulation in the winery. Chardonnay will range widely in character depending on its region of origin as well as winemaking style. One the lighter end of the spectrum, generally from cooler regions, it will display crisp, somewhat tart acidity alongside citrus and orchard fruit character and mineral texture. Moving to warmer climates gradually produces a more ripe stone and tropical fruit character. Winemaking, particularly the use of oak and batonnage (lees stirring) produces a richer, creamier texture and flavours of toast, butter, and vanilla spice.

Samurai Chardonnay Free Run Juice, natural wine, low intervention, clean, fresh and fruity no oak Chardonnay with some balmy Aussie summer thrown in. The Chardonnay from Free Run Juice is both classic in style, natural in production and simple in its aims. Aussie white can be a touch on the hard work side at this price point but this one lip smacks with zippy acid, whilst coating the mouth with white peach and notes of cream. ‘Tastes the Rain in the Australian Sunshine’.
