The Hidden Sea Chardonnay 2020
The Hidden Sea 2020 Chardonnay displays a brilliant, clear, pale yellow—with youthful green tints. Aromas of white peach and honeydew melon, with generous vanilla and toasty oak. Bright fruit flavors of white peach combine with juicy acidity, and a softly textured palate. Layers and persistence come from toasty well-integrated oak.
For every one bottle of The Hidden Sea sold, they remove and recycle 10 plastic bottles from the ocean.
The Hidden Sea is a no-nonsense premium wine company making wines that matter for people who care. Located in South Australia, which 26 million years ago was home to a thriving marine ecosystem.

The Hidden Sea honors their ocean heritage by partnering with ReSea Project and setting the world-standard for ocean waste plastic removal. Together, they’re making a positive, verifiable impact on the planet.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
