2016 Single Vineyard Estate Chardonnay
Pale straw green in colour with a complex bouquet, nutty and lifted. The palate is fine and deep with a long finish.
An excellent vintage for Margaret River Chardonnay.
The fruit for this wine was sourced from a single vineyard site – one of our vineyards in the Northern Margaret River wine region. The vineyard was planted over 17 years ago, a mature and low yielding site.
Hand-picked grapes were chilled overnight and whole bunch pressed. The juiced was fermented with wild yeast in barrel where it remained for eight months, then carefully clarified and bottled.

“This impressive, elegant chardonnay is one of the best from this producer. Engaging aromas of butterscotch and citrusy grapefruit with an underlying nectarine complexity. The palate is light-bodied but intense, with a tight controlling structure that carries it to a very long finish. The minerally edginess adds that final piece to the equation. Nice wine.” (Ray Jordan)

“Light to mid-yellow colour with a candlewax aroma, which is youthful and straightforward for its age. There are lemony flavours of good intensity and focus. A very nice wine, which just lacks some of the richness and generosity of classic Margs chardonnay.” (Huon Hooke)
