About the wine

Chardonnay with a twist!
  • Sam's ever popular Chardonnay is back! With only a touch of oak treatment, each sip packs plenty of fruit and a soft lingering finish.
  • A tried and tested Angel favourite, this will not only send Chardonnay lovers in to a spin, but it's light, modern style is the perfect mid-ground for those who typically avoid Chardonnay. Dip your toe in to this wonderful world!
  • At under $9 per bottle for Angels, don't sell you cellar short! Stock up on this crowd pleasing drop and revel in it's tantalising aromas, all made possible by your Angel backing.

Best before
Generally I encourage people to drink the Butterfly Effect Chardonnay as a youngster, say within 1 or 2 years. But this particular wine with its cooler alcohol and fresh acid will age a little longer for people who like Chardonnay with a more golden colour, and more toasty aromatics. But not to be misunderstood - the peachy fruit flavour makes it a great drink now wine!

Serving advice
I think 12-14C is a good drinking temperature for this wine - if it's too cold flavours get shut down. So if you have time, pull it out of the fridge half an hour before drinking, to let it warm up a little from the 5C fridge cold.

Food match
Don't know if they can be found in the UK, but a treat with yabbies! Or for something easier to find, drink this Chardonnay with any grilled fish, or with sushi and sashimi.
