English term or phrase: directors chardonnay (wine)
This is part of a wine list. Is Directors here part of the name or does it need to be translated? Also, what does bin followed by a number stand for in relation to wines?

Abfüllung
Explanation:
Bin stands for Abfüllun, to indicate which bin (Faß) the wine came from. I don't know about the directos's wine. Is Director spelled with a capital C? In this case I would not translate it.
Have fun!

Director's chardonnay


Explanation:
Der Chardonnay des Aufsichtsradsmitglieds doesn't sound too right does it?
bin=compartment. According to my info
it's not 'Faß' but box, crip, frame or enclosed place used for storage (coal~,apple~,grain~, wine~. To stow and age (bottled wine) in a bin)

Directors Reserve Chardonnay


Explanation:
...is what I found - also a "Directors' Reserve Twenty Year Old Tawny" port and also a Directors Reserve Whisky.

There seems to be general agreement that it should be Directors Reserve and the s' of the port example seems to show that "Directors(') Reserve" indicates a particularly fine wine or spirit - chosen by the Directors of the winery or distillery.
