Fowles Chardonnay ‘Are You Game’

Origin

Fowles Chardonnay ‘Are You Game’ is the creation of Matt Fowles, a self-taught hunter, chef, winemaker and jazz trumpet player, was an unfulfilled lawyer before buying a winery out of administration and creating Fowles Wine. The concept of food-friendly wines is hardly new, but Fowles broke new ground by creating a range designed specifically to be consumed with game, repeatedly testing out the wines against boar, venison, pheasant and fish until the blends were just right. Throw in those names – there’s another wine called Are you Game? – plus brightly-coloured labels designed by Matt’s wife Lu and, even in Australian ¡n terms, Fowles is a breath of fresh air.

Style

A youthful straw colour. Aromas of peach and papaya play with subtle oak and yeasty notes. Full bodied and fruity, the palate has a delightful creaminess as a result of ten months on its lees.

Food Pairing

Perfect to accompany game such as pheasant, grilled fish and seafood.
