"Cool, fresh, fine Chardonnay on the nose – this would be a devilish wine to include in a blind tasting. Pure, cool and perfect. Cool as a cucumber in fact. A southern-hemisphere Chablis? This seems underpriced to me." VVGV... Read More

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is one of the most-widely planted varieties in the world.

Arguably not the most characterful grape, hence its common ageing in oak, yet at its pinnacle in Burgundy it produces some of the greatest (and certainly most expensive) white wines in the world. Look out for unoaked Chardonnay, it can make a pleasant change, and usually goes down very well with all those people who...

François Massoc, a gentle, thoughtful man, is a master winemaker. Born just down the road in Concepcion, he spent years studying in Dijon and making wine in Burgundy before returning to Chile. He assists with advice in the vineyard, chooses the best parcels for the family's wine, likes to work with long, slow fermentations, and knows barrels backwards. He is one of the new gang shaking up the Chilean wine scene, being winemaker at boutique wineries Calyptra and Aristos. What we liked about his work at Pandolfi Price is that here are hand-crafted wines from a great site but without any fancy boutique prices.

Excellent wines sourced and chosen by the founder/wine expert, Simon Taylor. We were one of Stone Vine & Sun's very first clients and always buy from them. First-class knowledge and service.
