Haselgrove 2010 Bella Vigna Adelaide Hills Chardonnay

We don't usually quote "Recommended Retail" prices. They're often used to falsely exaggerate savings. If a wine's not worth the rrp than "HALF PRICE" is a pretty meaningless claim.
But this one is as good as it gets as far as bargains go.

For many winemakers chardonnay is their favourite variety. It's the grape that lets them experiment with all their tricks of the trade and really apply their signature to the finished wine. Well, this one has had the works and it has worked beautifully.
There's lashings of everything: rich, buttery fruit, quality wood and enough acid to hold it together over the next couple of years.

Why so cheap? I have absolutely no idea. We tasted the wine, were offered a price and grabbed the quantity on offer. I wish we had more.
RRP: $25

Our Price: $12 per bottle by the dozen
