McGuigan’s 2015 Black Label Chardonnay - South Eastern Australia

EXCELLENT value with dinner party starters, and equally
main course fish, chicken, pork or creamy pasta dishes.

IF a bulk-buy looks to be in order as the white for that next dinner party but you don't want to appear to being something of a cheapskate by sacrificing quality for price, satisfy quality and price with McGuigan's 2015 Black Label Chardonnay.

Because here's a great drop that's just $10 a bottle – and as little as $8 by the half- or dozen-bottle lot at some of the major chains – and when you taste it, you'll be wondering why it's not up to nearly double that.

Blended from fruit from across south-eastern Australia, this is a wine that's rich with tropical-fruit and melon flavours, has a touch of oak and an almost creamy palate, and not surprisingly has been the cornerstone white of the highly-popular Black Label range for many years.

Great to kick-off that dinner party with pre-mains finger foods, it's then equally at home with a whole range of main-course fish, chicken, pork or creamy pasta dishes.
