Kenwood 2016 Chardonnay is a full-bodied Chardonnay, gold in the glass with a smoky vanilla and butterscotch nose. On the palate, this wine is dry with lemon custard richness, apple pie, butterscotch and smoky flavours wrapped up in a zesty acidity. Pair with roasted chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Kenwood 2016 Chardonnay is great value under $20. This is a full-bodied Chardonnay, gold in the glass with a smoky vanilla and butterscotch nose. On the palate, this wine is dry, weighty with lemon custard, apple pie, butterscotch and smoky flavours wrapped up in a zesty acidity. Very nicely balanced. This is an end of summer Chard as we slowly slip into the autumn season and fall food fare like roast chicken, or game hens. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
