The Bogle family currently farms 1600 acres, with 1200 acres in Clarksburg and 400 in the Lodi appellation. Hand crafting wine is something Bogle winemakers have done for nearly 40 years now with passion for both the art and science of making wine. The Bogle Reserve is 100% barrel fermented in small, new American oak barrels for 15 months, 100% malolactic fermentation and monthly hand stirring of the lees. Golden yellow colour with aromas of melted butter, baking spices and glorious caramel toffee aromas. Nougat and caramel on the palate with just a touch of sweetness. Ripe stone and tropical fruit, a full creamy mouthfeel and toasty oak character. An instant classic, this takes the much loved Bogle style up a notch, making it a must try for fans of big, bold American Chardonnay!
"Rich, creamy wine with plenty of weight and mouth-feel. Ripe, creamy-textured Chardonnay with toast, caramel, honey, sizzled butter and nut flavours. A big and moderately complex wine" Bob Campbell, MW, Real Review, Dec 2019
