Nick Bulleid MW's Tasting Note

The grapes for this fresh, fruit-forward Chardonnay came from two vineyards at Wilyabrup and Carbunup, in the north of Margaret River. Summer and autumn in the region were relatively cool and the result was elegantly structured and flavoured wines. Fifteen per cent of the juice was barrel-fermented in small French oak and stored there until blending with the major portion.

Colour
Pale lemon yellow

Nose
Fresh, with honeydew melon and white peach. A touch of complexity from barrel-fermentation

Structure / Palate
Fine yet lively flavours – stonefruit and a little lemon. Medium bodied with fresh acidity and good length.

This wine shows Margaret River’s ability to produce finely flavoured wines as well as the fuller, highly complex examples for which it’s famed. Try it with seafood and salads. It will fill out further with short bottle-age, say until the end of 2018, but is at its best now.
