Nick Bulleid MW's Tasting Notes
Background

Margaret River weathered a hot December before the season returned to milder conditions. A short period of rain arrived comfortably before harvest. The grapes came from the Churchview vineyard and were from the locally famous Gingin clone, which brings concentrated flavours.

A 55% portion fermented in new and one-year-old French oak barrels whilst the remainder was fermented in tank. Malolactic fermentation was prevented to maintain acidity. The wine elements were subsequently combined and bottled in November 2021.

Colour
Pale lemon yellow.

Nose
White and yellow peach aromas combine with hints of honeydew and subtle oak.

Structure / Palate
Medium body. Good depth of stonefruit flavours and nice complexity. Finishes with balanced acidity and light tannin texture.

This flavoursome Chardonnay shows freshness and elegance whilst still showing typical Margaret River generosity. It will fill out further and build complexity through 2024.
