2016 Rikard Black Label Chardonnay


Our Black Label Chardonnay is only made in exceptional vintages, utilising the best fruit of the vintage to create an elegant wine that is fine-boned, subtle and restrained. It is made to be delicate and pretty, held by a persistent spine of acid in its youth. Whilst approachable young, it should slowly unravel with time to reveal even greater depth and complexity.

The 2016 has lemon sherbet, white nectarines and orange blossom bursting from the glass. Underneath, a layer of nougat and crème caramel. It is married with tight grain French oak. The palate is long and direct with citrusy acid to make you salivate. Toast and nut characters lurk beneath lime and grapefruit with a creamy, gently enveloping softness. Seamless and refreshing.


” A best barrel selection that distinguishes itself with an extra level of intensity and complexity that draws out the length of the finish.”
