Altletes of Wine Vino Athletico Chardonnay - Macedon Ranges
Closure: Screw cap
Bottle size: 750ml
This delicious Chardonnay from Victoria has quickly become a favourite in our store. Highly recommended by the Wine Experience team.
Our passion is for wines that speak of time and place - the season and the site, the vintage and the vineyard - not of winemaking technique.
Just like a great dish in a restaurant relies on taking the best produce you can get your hands on and treating it with respect, skill and often with restraint, we feel that great wines start with grapes grown with huge attention to detail in the vineyard, that are then treated with the same notions of respect, skill and restraint in the winery. It was the obvious choice for us to start our winemaking by leasing a vineyard, not a winery - we wanted to be responsible for the quality of the base material not for finishing it off.
The Athletes Of Wine are Matt Brooke and Liam O’Brien. We are Melbourne sommeliers, who in the winter of 2007 jumped at the opportunity to tend and nurture a plot of vines in the Macedon Ranges. We had no game plan, no end-point and no brand but have now emerged with a small selection of wines that we believe in and are proud to share with you.
We met working behind the bar of a restaurant with a world-class drinks list, soon realising that we needed to work hard and train every day to do justice to the amazing beverages we were surrounded by. As we focussed on wine and becoming sommeliers, the pressure grew as we tried to understand over 1500 wines on our list.
Like professional athletes there was no such thing as a "day off". Every day was a chance to taste, read, drink, taste, listen. blend, taste and drink again. And so we became the Athletes Of Wine. Always training hard, always looking to learn, and always having fun along the way.
Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)
In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.
The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").
Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.
For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.
Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
