Atipico Chardonnay 2023


This is Jordan's first Chardonnay release, and he's hit the ball out of the park. It's energetic and citrusy, with bready savouriness and creamy front palate texture. It's modern, medium bodied Chardonnay, where both precision and generousity are at play. The fruit comes from 30 year old Mendoza Chardonnay vines, organically grown in Rapaura, Marlborough. It was whole bunch pressed into French oak puncheons for wild yeast fermentation and aging. 

While Jordan Hogg's Atipico label is fairly new, he is by no means new to wine growing. He was Young Winemaker of the Year in 2016, and has worked for organic Marlborough icons Seresin and Rock Ferry. Based in a region that could be described as our most commercial, we love that his wines are characterful and indeed atypical.
