West Brook’s Barrique Fermented Chardonny has been spinning the wheels of bold, buttery Chardy lovers for some time, so if that’s the style that floats your boat chances are you’re no stranger to this label.
Although the winery is nestled just north of Kumeu the fruit for this little number comes from Marlborough. Entirely fermented in French oak and given partial malolactic fermentation, the process that help give a healthy dollop of buttery goodness in every glass!
Just a 30 minute drive north of downtown Auckland – we highly recommend paying the winery a visit one sunny weekend. Grab a rug, pack a picnic, grab yourself a glass of something something from the West Brook cellar door crew and set up camp on their awesome terraced picnic area over looking the duck pond. They’ve got balls too! Boules actually, so you can thrash it out on their full size petanque court! Game on.
