fetch unwooded chardonnay

Chardonnay should be the wine of choice when matching with fish pie; unoaked preferably. You need something ripe and silky to accompany the creamy element; a wine also with a little herby complexity to the flavour to match the mix in the dish (in this instance parsley and dill).

The new Billingsgate Fish Market Cookbook supplied the recipe, as detailed on SpittoonExtra. Naked Wines provided the wine, a rich, unoaked Chardonnay brimming with ripe peach and nectarine flavours with that required herb component.



White Wine Review/Tasting NoteWine Tasting Note: Amadio Wines Fetch Unwooded Chardonnay, 2008, South Australia

Stockist: Naked Wines Price: £7.99 [More: Adegga / Snooth]

Coupled with that New World Chardonnay richeness is a an edge of peach, pear and nuts, Good cleansing acidity keeps that creamy soft (and slightly sweet) palate in check and balanced; that forms a great little wine for fish and poultry dishes especially those in cream sauces. Alcohol 13.5%.


Scribblings Rating – 88/100 [3.5 out of 5]


“After enjoying this wine recently with freshly caught King George Whiting from Kangaroo Island of South Australia , one of Austrlia’s iconic, premium and most loved fish, served in a beer batter and lightly fried for 10 mins, accompanied by a crunchy loaf of fresh home made Italian Bread, with locally or home grown organic garden salad and roma tomatoes, finished with a dash of premium olive oil over the top. WARNING !!! This food and wine combination served amongst your friends and family will likely enusre that you are a requalr host amongst all.”

The Fetch Unwooded Chardonnay was one of 15 wines Naked Wines sourced via their unique ‘flash mob’ auction.

“Part flash mob, part social networking and part online auction all rolled into one. It seems crazy that this hasn’t been done before – it’s the next best thing to visiting three dozen wineries in one night and picking products straight from the cellar.”

Of the A$100,000 purchasing budget Amadio Wines, the producer received an order ammounting to A$8,050. The same auction also gave the Plunkett Fowles Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Chardonnay a listing at Naked Wines.
