This Chardonnay is that player you've known about forever who has not missed a beat. But one day he drops a sitter, a 'classic fumble' that nobody has forgotten about. That period through the 90's where Chardonnays, like Butterfingers, were no longer popular with wine drinkers was the 'classic fumble'. However, now is the time for those drinkers to remember the champion that the wine has always been.

Our notes

An un-ashamed nod to old school Chardonnay.  Big fat and oily Chardonnay that is summed up beautifully by its name ... Butterfingers.

In contrast to the modern, austere and ightly coiled Chardonnay's, this wine has it's eyes on the past.  Full bodied with lot's of rich fruit and hints of butterscotch, its for anyone that has said the words..... "I need a big buttery Chardonnay".

Nicely delivered with creamy mouthfeel achieved through battonage and time in oak. Right on the mark and not overdone.

Producers notes

It's back!! Re-introducing full-structured, big, rounded, gorgeous Chardonnay. New Butterfingers was aged in Le Grand Oak barrels which created a full-bodied and buttery flavour that lingers on. This wine undergoes a very labour-intensive lees stirring method and gains its oak character from the barrels in which it's aged.

Shipping

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.
