Pale straw with green hues.
A lifted nose exhibiting aromas of white nectarines and peaches. A subtle hint of cashew-like oak helps to highlight the many layers of this wine.
Intense and ripe stonefruit flavours abound on the palate, with nuances of brioche and dough. The fine natural acidity helps define and lengthen the palate and a suggestion of oak texture ensures great presence and persistence.

2016 represents the third vintage of the Side by Side Chardonnay by Deep Woods. It reflects our continuing dedication to making expressive wines from the Margaret River region that present both finesse and balance. This vintage provided amazing fruit depth and generosity yet retains attractive freshness and most importantly drinkability.
A combination of tank and barrel fermented batches were integral in harnessing the freshness and vibrancy of the wine but also the underlying texture and complexity inherent in great Margaret River Chardonnay. A combination of wild and cultured yeast was used for the fermentation and the wine spent six months in older French oak prior to bottling.
