Brancott Estate Letter Series O Chardonnay

O for Awesome!

Brancott Estate Letter Series O Chardonnay

2019, Marlborough New Zealand
  • What used to be O for Ormond (Gisborne) is now O for Omaka (Marlborough)
  • Winner of 12 Gold medals and 4 Trophies across the last 3 vintages
  • A seriously under priced, very classy Marlborough Chardonnay
  • RRP $24.99


    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.

    The 2016 went nuts with 5 Gold medals.
    The 2017 went berserk with 4 Trophies and 4 Gold medals.
    The 2018 followed up very nicely with 3 Golds.
    The 2019 is now here, watch this space!

    This is world class Marlborough Chardonnay that is seriously under priced for twenty bucks, the previous two vintages back that up. 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!

    The Lowdown: 13.5% alc / 750ml / Screwcap
