"Another goodie from the Norton Ridge Wine Company with big, soft, creamy flavours and a full body. It’s three years old and is beginning to develop complex flavours of spice, which come from the oak aging process that is typically used to add body and complexity to Chardonnays. A good drink now or soon." - 4 Stars, Joelle Thomson, Wine Writer
"Drinking well now and for the next few years... if it lasts that long! Chardonnay from California, historically given a bad rap because of the sheer amount of harsh, new oak the winemakers were using, today is synonymous with the words balanced, complex and full of flavour! Vinified and bottled by the Norton Ridge Wine Co this Chardy from Bodan Roan is just that and then some. While the oak is still obvious, its balanced with layers of ripe fruits, soft spice and buttery cream notes which gives it texture and a long, lingering finish. While it can be paired with any typical Chardonnay favourites like chicken and cheese, we think this one is best savoured on its own. Drink now, and into 2021." - Wine Central Tasting Panel
A balanced Californian Chardonnay with a clean line of acidity and delicate touch of oak. Fresh, lightly fruity, sophisticated and a classic style. Lush texture develops throughout the palate with ripe fruits at the forefront and pastry, vanilla notes emerging towards the finish.
"Bodan Roan was inspired by our travels and experiences throughout the world. This is the purpose of the BR passport stamp on the lower left of the label, and a testament to the ever evolving vintage character of wine. The Pinot Noir and Cabernet are testaments to our relationships with growers and vintners in the Valley and beyond.
The winemaking style is one of little intervention. Very little new oak is used to allow the fruit and varietal characteristics of the wines to shine through. Both the Pinot Noir and Cabernet are clean, bright wines that pair well with a wide variety of foods." - Bodan Roan
