The Scallywag

Knock, Knock. Who’s there? Chardonnay. Chardonnay who? You know me. I’m THE classic white grape variety and I’m back. Where on earth have you been for the past few years? Quite simply I never went away; I’ve just been out of the spotlight while people have been sucked in by that shallow ’other white’. But guess what? They are now sick of it. Quite understandably because it lacks depth and it’s always the same old, same old. On the other hand, I have always been about character and that means you don’t tire of me easily. So, I didn’t go away but nevertheless I’m back with renewed interest and, believe it or not, popularity. Now you can fall in love with me… all over again. Convince me you Scallywag! Read on McDuff…

Winemaker's Notes

Chardonnay is the classic ‘winemakers grape’; effortlessly able to work with whatever style is in mind and still shine. Changes to fashion never phase this variety; whatever the season it is always ready to impress.

Bouquet & Palate

Striking, subtle, and satisfying, the Scallywag sidles up and says ‘enjoy’. All white peach fluff, bake ready bread dough, bay and lemon leaves. Just a titch of vanilla and sage leaf too. A swaggerous Scallywag that knows it’s good and doesn’t mind telling you all about it.

Food Match

Baked Rainbow Trout with Lemongrass, steamed Pak Choi and coconut rice.
