Save $5.00 (22%)
Au Bon Climat has been making balanced, food friendly Chardonnays since 1982.

This is one of those wines that invites the consumer to have another glass. At this young age, this wine would be perfect with shellfish or poultry. It will improve for at least 10 years and as it evolves, try this wine with chanterelle mushroom pasta and be amazed.

In 1876 Wilson survived a dangerous escape from his prisoin in Fremantle and fled to New York, spending his remaining years in the U.S. A blend that is brooding with richness. Like the wine rations served on convict ships, every sip deserves to be savored.
