The Details

In a Nutshell

Deliciously bright and citrussy Chardonnay from cool Western Australia.

Tasting Notes

From a Chardonnay clone that originates from Mendoza, this always shows prominent tangerine notes on the nose, and this vintage also shows intense grapefruit, lime and hints of spice. Refreshingly unoaked, citrus and white peach flavours combine with a zesty fresh acidity and a clean, bright and linear mineral finish.

Production Notes

The Chardonnay was carefully sourced from vines grown in the Frankland River region. The region has elevation and a continental climate with variable temperature similar to that of Bordeaux. The predominant soils are sandy loams deriving directly from granite and gneissic bedrocks. They are typically brown to grey brown in colour. Fertility is moderate as are typical yields, grapes tend to be high in concentrated flavours. This Chardonnay clone originated in Mendoza and has a distinctive tangerine peel character.

Bright sunny days and cool nights allowed for exceptional flavour development. The wine is a clean crisp style with no malolactic fermentation or Oak treatment. The result is an elegant wine with high natural acidity.

Press Quotes & Awards

Silver (2011 vintage)

Sommelier Wine Awards 2013

Quite elegant, this has good texture, a dry crisp finish, and lingering tropical stone fruit flavours. With its 'spice and pithy tang', the OXO Tower's Mark Graham felt it would be good with pear and walnut salad.
