In the 1980s Aussie Chardonnay got us ‘poms’ hooked on the whole wine thing. We’ve since been won over by Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio but sales suggest Chardonnay is making a comeback. The Full Fifteen is a fresh and peachy Australian classic.

Online Review For the 2015 vintage
We asked our old Aussie mate Andrew ‘Big Mac’ McPherson to make us a ‘Chardie’ to go with his popular Full Fifteen red. A ‘no holds barred’ Chardonnay, yet balanced and well proportioned. We knew he'd more than stump up the goods. Andrew is hugely experienced. He grew up in the world of wine and went on to work for some top names in Oz before settling down to craft really characterful, great value wines like this one, under his own name. A small amount of fermentation in oak has lent this Chardonnay lovely toasty nuances, a nutty complexity and a soft creamy character. It’s an everyday wine that tastes much more expensive thanks to top grapes and Andrew’s know-how. A great choice with herby dishes such as tarragon chicken or herb baked cod.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
