    If you love your Chardonnays a little bit richer, a little bit creamier, a little bit buttery, then buckle up and get set for the Fat Bastard! All the way from Monterey in California, USA (the home of a fair few fat bastards) this is the Fat Bastard Remarkably Full Bodied Californian Chardonnay and the name tells you pretty much everything you need to know.

    After all, Fat Bastard’s don’t do small. These richer, creamier styles of Chardonnay from California have been all the rave over the years and this, in our opinion, has consistently hit the nail on the head between price and quality.

    If you prefer a leaner, lighter oaked style white – back off, the Fat Bastard ain’t for you! Scoring 4 1/2 Stars (out of 5) and a score of 91/100 by Wine Orbit’s Sam Kim. Sam called this “Beautifully rounded and creamy, this enticing chardonnay shows apricot, rockmelon, vanillin oak and hint of toffee notes, combined with succulent mouthfeel and silky texture, making it comforting and delectably appealing. At its best: now to 2023.”

    Chill this down in the fridge and pair with pretty much a solid serving of white meat or fish in creamy sauces. No lightweights here, go big or go home!
