Elegant, fragrant notes of lemon, peach and tropical fruits lead into pure and clean flavours on the palate. Balanced acid and a long finish make this an ideal everyday Chardonnay in the 'modern' style, measured oak treatment providing complex elements to the palate.
Awards and Accolades
2015 Vintage: 94 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, wild-fermented in new and 1yo French oak, bottled Dec '15. Interesting: the first note on the bouquet is preserved lemon, then both white peach and nectarine, characters that expand progressively through to the finish and aftertaste."
From the Winery
Margaret River has an abundant winter and spring rainfall then following on from that little or no rain from November until mid-Match. Whilst yields were relatively low in the region for this year, those picked were of excellent quality.
Fruit was handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented with natural yeasts and aged in new and one year old French oak prior to bottling. Pedestal is so named due to the elevation of the Margaret River vineyard we initially sourced fruit from to create these wines.
It is with our Pedestal range, now encompassing a number of vineyards from North to South, that we seek to uncover and express sub-regionality in this part of the world. In general terms, Northern Margaret River is better suited to red wines with its slightly warmer Indian Ocean influence whereas souther Margaret river is better suited to whites and the cooling influence of the Southern Ocean breeze.
Here we show images of Margaret River that are aromatic and vibrant, not heavily oaked. The concept of pedestal is about raising the fruit expression above any winemaking construct.
