Tasting Notes

colour

Pale straw with a golden hue.

aroma

White flowers, nectarine and lemon peel aromas with warm toasty almond biscuit.

palate

This wine displays juicy white peach flavours with an underlying citrus freshness. This is a medium bodied Chardonnay with vibrant notes of candied lime peel and rich roasted cashews.

cellaring

This wine may be enjoyed on release but will find further complexity with two to three of years ageing.

Technical

vintage

We had a mild spring with adequate soil moisture, resulting in a slightly later season. A moderate summer led to ideal ripening conditions with little pressure in the vineyard and a lack of any major rain events during the ripening season. Consistently warm days and cool evenings made for great retention of acid within the grapes, whilst achieving optimal fruit expression.

winemaking

Fruit was sourced from across the Margaret River region for this delightfully complex yet eminently drinkable wine. Fermentation was carried out using wild yeast and the wine was left to mature on lees for six months in new and seasoned French oak imparting great texture and length.

Reviews

Ray Jordan Wine Guide 2024

Just a little barrel fermentation has transformed this from the normal fruit-bomb style into a wine of sophistication and style, while still allowing the punchy savvy fruit to display its virtues. Typical characters of passionfruit, gooseberry and a little snow pea are lifted with a little of the lemony oak influence. A really attractive wine to drink while it is still fresh, but which can handle a little cellaring time.
