Margaret River is producing some serious and site-specific Chenin Blanc, a variety that Chief Winemaker Julian Langworthy calls "Margaret River’s other great white grape."
When describing this wine, Julian said: “It is super exciting to put out a Chenin Blanc under the Deep Woods label. Sourced from the Yallingup Hills, right in the middle of the Deep Woods heartland. This wine has a lovely natural acidity and huge complexity from partial barrel ferment. A very versatile wine with a saline and slinky citrus drive.”
Partial barrel ferment has contributed to a more medium-bodied mouth feel, with ripe citrus, nectarine and honeydew flavours on the palate, followed by the Chenin hallmark – a racy natural acidity.

The nose is intense with bright aromas of citrus, white florals and green apples.
This is a medium-bodied expression of Margaret River Chenin Blanc, displaying flavours of ripe citrus, nectarine and honeydew alongside a pristine natural acidity. This wine has a juicy, mouth-watering texture with a long refreshing finish.
The 2021 vintage was moderate, mild and a wonderful year. Rainfall in early January renewed canopies across the region and resulted in beautifully ripe, varietally pure wines that are brimming with perfect, delicate, natural acidity.
This wine is produced solely from Margaret River fruit and made to sit alongside the very best wines from the Deep Woods stable. A Margaret River classic varietal, partial barrel ferment, huge complexity, saline, slinky citrus drive.
