Tasting Notes

This Chardonnay showcases the ability of Denmark to create superior, cool-climate, Chardonnay.

Inspired by the Grand Cru’s of French Chablis, the Il Liris Chardonnay exhibits highly intense flavours of ripe white peach and citrus. French oak is used to infuse the wine with a complex and satisfying level of texture without taking away from the piercing fruit character. A Chardonnay for Riesling Freaks.



96 Points Ray Jordan , 2018 Western Australian Wine Guide

“"This is a 100 percent Denmark-sourced wine. It’s right at the pinnacle for Castelli. There is a beautiful purity and lifted vitality about it. Yet there is also a deeper lurking complexity of slightly funky characters that make for an intriguing merging of the ways. Savoury with a very dry flinty finish. This is chardonnay ... at the top end and mighty good stuff." Show more Show less
