    Some plonker once said “O is for Awesome” but Chardonnay guzzlers from back in the day will probably remember Montana’s (now called Brancott Estate) “O” Chardonnay from Gisborne, which really was quite awesome. A classic big, buttery and bold Gizzy Chard in a glass!

    These days Brancott have taken the Chardy in the Letter Series down to Marlborough. What was O for Ormond is now O for Omaka. This sub region in Marlborough is something of a hotspot for wicked Chardonnay with other top NZ producers like Saint Clair just down the road knocking out world class Chardonnay under their own label.

    They call it an “elegant expression of Chardonnay“, we think it’s down right delicious Chardy for under $20. This has the legs to be cellared for 5-10 years from vintage – best served with chicken, pork or veal in rich, creamy sauces! Mmm!
