Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
A modern style of Chardonnay with lemon, honey and stonefruit aromas integrated with delicate cedar notes.
The palate has a fresh and zingy fruit profile which balances its full-body, vanilla notes and rich mouthfeel gained from lees ageing in oak.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 3 years

Of the 2011 vintage, Fiona Beckett said: “McGuigan Shortlist Chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills…is a massive mouthful for the money.”
The McGuigan family have been producing wine in Australia for four generations. The Shortlist range is a selection of multi-award winning wines that represent the unique flavour and character of each varietal as well as the influence of the terroir on the wine. Each bottle is individually numbered. McGuigan was recently named the International Wine and Spirit Competition Australian producer of the year and International Winemaker of the year for an unprecedented third time in four years.
The fruit for this limited release wine was sourced from our Schuberts Vineyard in the cool climate area of the Adelaide Hills. Coming from several topographic aspects, allows different characteristics to play their part in this wine. South-east facing slopes yield fruit with citrus notes and minerality. Whilst North facing slopes give palate fullness and stone fruit characters.
