Pristine, clear and crisp Chardonnay from Margaret River. Initial aromas are of grapefruit, honey and lime with notes of almond and oatmeal sitting in the background. Flavours of grapefruit and pear are clean and refreshing, light oaky notes sitting in the background.
Awards and Accolades
93 Points - Huon Hooke "This well-priced young chardonnay has a light hue and restrained straw-hay aromas over lemon and grapefruit nuances, which also fill the palate. The finish is clean, crisp and refreshing. It has early-picked vitality, purity of fruit and sensitively handled oak."
2015 Vintage: 94 Points - James Halliday, Wine Companion "This is your Margaret River captain speaking, through a complex bouquet with a reductive struck match note. The palate with an intense river pebble minerality and an Xmas stocking of grapefruit, lime and lemon fruit lightly kissed by oak."
From the Winery
We look to downplay the influence of oak and let the pristine fruit flavours take main stage. It’s energetic and long with a high drinkability factor.
Our usual winter rainfall arrived early in the season, which then eased off in the later half and into spring. This provided the region with a warmer than average spring, and as a result predictions for another early vintage were being made. Rain returned in December, and the weather returned to normal through to the second week of January.
Rain in mid-January had an immediate effect and recharged the dry sub-soils. As the fruit was still firm,quality wasn’t effected, and came into the winery clean, vibrant with layers of flavour.
