The Single Vineyard range stems from our deep respect for the land and belief in maintaining its integrity through to the bottle.
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.
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.
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.
A hyper-perfumed nose, with lifted violets, lavender and mulberries entwined with a savoury note of olive tapenade. The palate is a crescendo of flavour - sweet fruit at the start, savoury at the back. Blueberries, mulberries and spiced plum evolving to clove, anise and jamon. A wine unlike any other in the region and a true reflection of the “Syrah” style.
A lifted nose of red plums, raspberries and minted chocolate combine with sweet spice box and red liquorice. The medium bodied palate displays spiced cranberry confection, sour cherry and dried prunes driven by lovely acidity and silky, chocolate dust tannins. This fruit driven Zinfandel is guaranteed to please as a young wine but will improve with careful cellaring over the years.
A purist’s Cabernet; unfined and unfiltered, this is an elegant expression of Hazel’s Vineyard with harmony, balance and integrity.
