Tasting Notes

colour

Brilliant condition. Pale straw in colour with a fresh green rim.

aroma

Pear, stone-fruit and melon, with layers of wild herbs, subtle spice and a savoury twist of fresh bread.

palate

Wonderfully fresh, flavoursome and subtly textural and complex. An original, pure and exciting expression of Margaret River Chardonnay. 

cellaring

Will continue to develop for up to five years from vintage.

Technical

vintage 

Another fortunate vintage for the Margaret River Region, especially when compared to what some other regions in parts of Australia had to endure. A very early start and finish to the vintage due to a dry and warm spring which warmed the soil and promoted early and healthy vine growth. The white harvest was over quick with temperatures in early March then moderating, which slowed ripening in the reds, allowing flavour to intensify and tannins to soften.

winemaking

Our vineyard used to create this wine consistently produces fruit with rich Our vineyard used for this wine consistently produces fruit with rich yet fresh flavours early in the season with the ideal balance to allow this wine to be released early without sacrificing texture or complexity. Cool, cloudy juice went into one-year-old French oak barriques direct from the press. Here it was wild fermented to impart textural complexity, savoury elements and a distinct house style. On completion of fermentation, each barrel was topped and stirred fortnightly until bottled.
