History
Isabel Estate is one of the original Marlborough vineyards with some of the oldest vines in the region on original rootstock. In 1980 pilot Mike Tiller discovered a precious pocket of land and he and his wife Robyn built a winery on the site and named it in honour of Mike's mother, Isabel. Throughout the 1980s the couple planted key noble varietals and began to deliver fruit of exceptional quality, in high demand from premium and internationally renowned wine producers.
Regional Information
The Marlborough region has a maritime climate. The cooling influence of the nearby ocean contributes to the great acidity and freshness that we know and love in wines from this region. The region also benefits from plentiful sunshine to assist grape ripening.

Vinification Details
All fruit was whole bunch pressed and settled in tank overnight before being transferred to barrel for fermentation. Predominately wild fermented with a small portion inoculated to enhance fruit notes. Extended time of lees in barrel allows the wine to soften and increase in complexity over time.

not for me

I was sent this free to review. I wouldnt normally buy Chardonnay as my white wine of choice. The smell was unpleasant and even after letting it breathe I still couldnt get over the aroma. The taste was just ok, which is not enough for me to spend £20 on. Sister and brother liked it, but not for me.

A lovely drop

Sent this for review. Im usually not a great fan of Chardonnay too oaky too heavy. After opening this my heart sank the first aroma was oaky, in fact I would say it smelt of an old oak barrel! But my initial fears were to be unfounded. This wine is light slightly green with a hint of vanilla and a very smooth finish. Im actually totally smitten and so is my husband. I would definitely recommend, first night we had it with a Japanese curry which it worked well with and then the next night enjoyed it by its self

Beautiful Chardonnay

If you like Chardonnay, I think you’ll love this New Zealand Chardonnay from the Isabel Estate. Wines have got an awful lot more expensive lately, and I wouldn’t have selected this one at £20, I tend to stick to those I know I like rather than risk wasting money. But because I received this from ocado for review, I was lucky enough to try it for free. And now I’ll be buying it again! It has that distinctive Chardonnay aroma and taste, and I love the mineral notes to it. It starts off fresh and acidic then the warmer, fruitier and very slightly oaky vanilla notes kick in. It’s not too light, it has some intensity. We enjoy it on its own but also I think it would go well with chicken, fish, pork or a lovely veggie dish. I would recommend it - and I do like supporting a small vineyard run on sustainable lines like this one.

divided opinions

We received this Chardonnay from Ocado to review. I wouldnt normally choose this wine and was hoping to enjoy it, but I really disliked it. My husband thought it was a nice, non-acidic, drinkable wine but felt it was too expensive for every day drinking.

Classic Chardonnay

I’m reviewing this product because I got a free sample from Ocado. This is a classic Chardonnay at a fair price, you cannot go wrong with it.

Really Not For Me

I received this to review and Im not a big Chardonnay drinker but have recently enjoyed some more premium Chardonnays. However this one is really not for me! Its incredibly strong and oaky, and I couldnt drink it. Only buy if you love an oaky Chardonnay.
