Narkoojee Wines 2020 Valerie Chardonnay

Awarded Gold Medal (95 points) – Halliday Wine Companion

“Wild fermentation in French oak (50% new) with half going through mlf, and on lees for 15 months but bâtonnage. And with all that going on, this remains composed and balanced.

It’s full of citrus and white peach, spiced with ginger powder. The oak is well integrated, while the finish is long and decisive.”

The fruit for this wine is handpicked from our older vines. The wine is named in honour of Valerie Friend as a co-founder of Narkoojee.

The Valerie series is reserved for small parcels of supreme quality wines. It was fermented by indigenous yeasts and matured in new and one year old French oak hogsheads.

This beautifully balanced 2020 Valerie Chardonnay, is intense and complex wine with a lovely creamy texture and natural mineral acidity.

The Real Review:

The Real Review

“A light to medium straw-yellow tint in the glass. Ripe pineapple and burnt butter aromatics. A big wine, with fruit and buttery savouries loaded up to full volume.

All that concentration manages to stay in check, with a firm acidity driving it quite long and keeping it dry to the finish.

A generous style that will offer a lot to many palates.”
