92Vinous / IWC

Smoky, mineral-tinged citrus and orchard fruits on the perfumed nose, along with building floral and tarragon elements... Finishes long and precise, with the mineral and floral notes echoing.

92Wine Enthusiast

...lift of tangy citrus and stone fruit, with just a hint of oak and native yeast complexities. The palate is light to medium in weight with a gentle textural creaminess, bright fruit and a salty crunch to the acidity.

91Wine Spectator

Expressive and generous, with ripe pear, yellow apple and spice notes that have plenty of concentration and a lush frame. A note of mouthwatering lemon curd lingers on the finish.

91James Suckling

Mangoes, apricots, spiced apples, cloves, white lavender and cream on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with bright acidity and a creamy and buttery yet fresh palate.


Australia, Western Australia, Margaret River

Western Australia is the nation’s largest state by square miles. However, by population and wine production, it is small. Western Australia covers about a third of Australia but has only about 27,000 square miles of vineyards, which produce about 7% of the nation’s wine. Nevertheless, wine writers Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson have noted that “in quality terms (Western Australia) is very near the top, with a distinctive lightness of touch combined with ripeness of fruit – an unusual combination in Australia.” The region’s winemaking history started in the 1830s and was centered in Swan Valley, which remains an important winemaking region despite its extremely hot, dry weather. By the early 20th century, the Swan Valley was noted for its age-worthy Chenin Blanc, and white wine grapes remain a staple of Swan Valley vineyards. Other important sub regions are the Margaret River area, noted for its lush, maritime landscapes, and the Great Southern sub-appellations. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Malbec and Sauvignon Blanc are the major grapes grown.


White Wine, Chardonnay

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
