Houtgelagerde Chardonnay 2018


Buttery Lemon & Stone

The Dutch monastery wine that all the cool kids are talking about. This is a bright, stony Chardonnay, fresh like a Chablis, with a jumble of citrus fruits. Smoothly textured with well-integrated oak, this 2018 Chardonnay is testament to the future of Dutch winemaking.

Only a few bottles left of this vintage!

Undeterred by declining church participation, the sisters planted a vineyard in 2014 in order to generate income for the preservation of the monastery. Then they set about converting their old cowshed into a winery before the completion of the first harvest in 2017.  Learn more
