Forget Hollywood starlets, it is this Fat Bastard Chardonnay that is the most famous (and well loved) Californian to have ever walked through the door at The Wine Collective. 
Over the past few years we have sold semi-trailer loads of this superb Chardonnay for one very good reason - it's delicious. Proudly full-flavoured and old-school rich, this buttery white tastes like how Chardies used to always taste, with real rich golden fruit flavour and lots of it.

Try one. You won't be dissapointed.

How's it taste?

Ripe, fleshy stone fruits with hints of vanilla and honeysuckle and lashings of delicate, buttery sweet almond crossiant. No surprises here - Fat Bastard Chardonnay has an opulent, luscious palate of grilled pineapple and juicy clingstone peach, followed by spiced butterscotch and loads of textural nutty, mealiness. Bright acidity brings length and freshness to the intense fruit characters. Like drinking pure sunshine.

How was it made?

Machine harvested during the cool of the night. Cold and slow fermentation with aromatic yeast to retain freshness in stainless steel. Matured in both American and French oak. Bottled under screwcap to retain freshness.

Who made it?

The brainchild of Guy Anderson and Thierry Boudinaud, Fat Bastard Wines came into being via an exclamation, "Now that is what you call a Fat Bastard!" The comment came in response to a barrel of experimental Chardonnay that Thierry had left on lees for an extended maturation. Both Guy and Thierry felt that the wines had to be shared with the world, and so Fat Bastard Wines was born. Now, the pair work with wineries and vineyards from all over the world, sourcing fruit and juice from a myriad different regions and countries. But one factor remains the same: they make unapologetically full-bodied wines, packed with flavour and vibrancy.

My friends often ask me, “How do you know which wine to pick?” To be honest to comes down to a range of factors; the occasion, the people, the food or even just what mood I’m in. But one of the things I love is when I try something new or slightly different to what I’d normally drink and it blows me away. Here are a few wines that I’ve recently uncovered:
