2017 Burnside Chardonnay
A wine of pedigree from a heritage Margaret River vineyard, the 2017 Burnside Chardonnay displays the benchmark notes of cashew and roasted almonds. Aromas of pink grapefruit, melon and nectarine give way to nuances of Jasmine tea and natural ferment complexity. The palate combines power and grace with light brioche dough and lemon curd framed by a core of creamy acidity and an oyster shell-like minerality. Generous in both flavour and acidity, the uniqueness of this wine captures Burnside’s personality.
2017 Calgardup Brook Vineyard Chardonnay
The cooler conditions of the 2017 season have created a wine of great purity and finesse. Our 2017 Calgardup Brook Vineyard Chardonnay shows all the hallmarks typical of this block located by the Indian Ocean. Oyster shell and sea spray notes are immediately evident on the nose, followed by delicate nectarine and nashi pear flesh. Beeswax and delicious nougat lead to a flinty complexity - the result of wild fermentation with full solids and extended time on lees. The saline acidity is well balanced by excellent texture and an attractive chalky grip. A mineral Chardonnay highlighting the terroir of this southern Margaret River site.
2017 Hazel’s Vineyard Chardonnay
A lifted bouquet of mandarin peal and lemon curd leap from the glass with graphite and struck match adding layers of complexity. Creamy and textured this Chardonnay’s purity of flavour is well balanced with succulent acidity which is typical of the vintage. This wine has plenty of nerve and energy complemented by impressive length.
