Kylie Minogue Margaret River Chardonnay 2019
Kylie Minogue Margaret River Chardonnay 2019 especially for you…
Part of the Collection Range, her flagship single-estate wines, Kylie Minogue’s Chardonnay is crafted by one of Margaret River’s top producers (and that’s some stiff competition). Howard Park is a member of Australia’s First Families of Wine, a group of a dozen of the country’s finest, most iconic and most historic wineries. Their wines are adored by all Aussie wine connoisseurs, so the fact that Kylie was able to convince them to make her Chardonnay, using grapes from some of their finest parcels, is quite the coup. Of course, it didn’t hurt that the Burch family are massive fans of the songstress. Maturation in old 600-litre French oak barrels imparts a creamy texture and vanilla, almond croissant and toasted hazelnut notes, but in an elegant style that never overpowers the zing of pear sorbet, Amalfi lemon, crunchy peach and golden apple. That richness combined with perfectly balanced acidity has us dreaming of roasted chicken and all its juices, buttery fish dishes and spring vegetable risottos. After receiving a Gold Medal at Drinks Business’ Chardonnay Masters 2020, the judges noted: “This was the first time Kylie’s new-launch wine had been taste tested blind against its peers. Those who are sceptical about celebrity-backed wines should be reassured – this is a great glass of Chardonnay.”
Having sold over 80 million records and topped the UK album chart in five consecutive decades, the “Princess of Pop”, Kylie Minogue OBE, has now become the princess of popping corks. Her eponymous wine range burst onto the scene in 2020 and sold more than a million bottles within its first year. The multi-award-winning singer, songwriter, actor, philanthropist, breast cancer awareness campaigner, style icon and now Creative Director of a highly successful premium wine brand, has been “unbelievably humbled and thrilled by the global response to Kylie Minogue Wines.” When we met the fabulous London resident, she admitted that she has always loved wine, fondly recalling cooking and chatting with her friends and family over a bottle or two. She therefore has some pretty strong views on the subject, which was why when approached by Benchmark Drinks about creating the Kylie range, she told them these would not be “style over substance” and that if they were “just plonking my name on it, I’m not interested.” She definitely got her way. Later, she told us that she remembered ascending the escalators to the Harvey Nichols Foodmarket and Wine Shop at our flagship Knightsbridge store in the 1990s, but would never have dreamt that over twenty years later her products would grace those shelves. Now, that’s exactly where they are. I should be so lucky.
