    This wine was sourced from the Wilyabrup Valley, located in the heart of Margaret River. This region is known for producing plush whites with ripe flavours, and it’s a region where the “Gingin” clone of Chardonnay excels. This clone typically has smaller berries that offer up high skin-to-juice ratios and higher natural acidity, which match perfectly with the Wilyabrup climate. After harvesting, the fruit was chilled before being pressed. The wine was then “wild” fermented in barrel to add complexity and structure. Following ferment the wine remained on lees until August, when it was racked together, filtered and bottled. We feel an early bottling is the best way to preserve the freshness and delicacy of the 2017 vintage. This wine is a bright, pale straw colour. The nose is complex and opulent, with toasty barrel notes combining with a mix of stonefruits. There are aromas of rockmelon, nectarine and white peach, and also lemon and citrus, with some notes of powder room musk mixed in. The palate is medium bodied and full flavoured, with a rich unctuousness to it, and the fruit flavours of the nose return and run though the palate. The wine finishes with lively acidity, and good length.


    If you haven't visited, you must. A rustic, deliciously salty, native eucalypt forest framed version of Australian coastal paradise. Whatever is farmed and harvested here, both from land or sea, is inevitably healthy, fresh and richly flavoured - idiosyncratic to this corner of Australia. Merely 3 hours drive south of Western Australia's capital Perth, the Margaret River wine region is a naturally beautiful area bordered by the Indian ocean which is a major geographic influence - a natural gem for keeping the grapes balanced and not over-ripe. This region produces some of the most profound & exciting wines in the world - genuinely world class. Producers here are farming and crafting wines in all sorts of styles worthy of discovering - traditional and age worthy to avant-garde and tumbler bound. Cabernet Sauvignon here is exceptional. Look to producers such as Cullen, Pierro, Si Vintners, (some new trendy, some the highest quality etc..). Local Knowledge: Drink at Settlers Tavern - one of the most exceptional wine list in the country.
