A bolt from the blue and a blast from the past! Anyone that was guzzling Chardonnay regularly back in the 80s and 90s will known Morton Estate Black Label Chardonnay. It made a huge slam dunk in 2018 when it took out 5 Stars and No.2 ranked NZ Chardonnay in Cuisine!
This is their latest ’21 release and we’re happy to report it’s made in the same rich, creamy, classic Gizzy style Chardonnay that made the region famous. It’s a style that’s sure to melt even the coldest hearts!
In fact the 2021 vintage in Gizzy was a real cracker – although yields were down quality was right up there. So watch this space, this wine is only going to develop and get better and better over the next few years!
Morton Brown was a kiwifruit farmer who turned his hand to vino and produced his first vintage at his Katikati vineyard in 1983. A year later his Black Label Chardy won Gold at the 1984 Royal Easter Wine Show. Wind the clock forward a few years and in 1995 Morton hit international wine star status as the Black Label Chardonnay won a Gold medal and Trophy for Best Chardonnay at the prestigious International Wine Challenge in London!
Pair this with pork, chicken or other white meat dishes in rich, creamy sauces for the best wine and food pairing.
