We have a selection of wines made with the chardonnay grape. These are usually known as Oaked or Un-oaked. The difference between oaked and un-oaked chardonnay is that oaked chardonnay is aged in new oak barrels, while un-oaked is not. When chardonnay spends time in oak barrels instead of steel or plastic tanks, the oak imparts flavours into the wine that resemble sweet vanilla, caramel, and butter.
To find out if your chardonnay is oaked or un-oaked, read the tasting notes and look for descriptors such as “crisp,” “refreshing” or “vibrant” to suggest unoaked Chardonnays, while oaked wines might be described with “toast” or “vanilla.”
We also have wines that are made of a blend of chardonnay grapes with other varieties.

Other wines we have are those made up of a blend of grapes but include chardonnay, which makes a large variety of flavours, suitable for all tastes. Some of these are Octerra, Goru and Mad Bird.
