2021 Chardonnay, Margaret River $45.00
94 Points – James Halliday Wine Companion
“Bâtonnage was conducted regularly and MLF occurred in some barrels. For all the work, the cool year has kept this totally in line. It’s like a picture of opulence, without actually being opulent. Kind of like a brilliant outdoor fresco. It has crushed nuts, briny acid, toasty oak, salted peach … it’s all there, but it’s restrained. Very smart and well handled. Delicious.” Erin Larkin.
The inspiration for this wine is easy. Chardonnay loves Margaret River, and Margaret River loves Chardonnay. Our love for local Chardonnay is unconditional, and with love comes great respect. Respect for Margaret River as one of the best locations to grow Chardonnay in Australia. Respect for the individual traits of the differing Chardonnay clones grown in the region, the subtle variance of terroir, and particularly what vintage conditions get dished out. Ultimately this all then combines to the greatest respect for the critical role of winemaking in shaping great fruit into brilliant Chardonnay.
Stylistically, we say the 2021 Chardonnay is a contemporary Margaret River Chardonnay with a classical edge.
2021 Rosé, Margaret River $30.00
Our 2021 Rosé is made from free run Muscat à Petit Grains, Chenin Blanc and Pinot Gris. The Muscat delivers a blush tone with lifted floral notes and the natural sweetness is balanced with a blend of barrel fermented Chenin Blanc and Pinot Gris, which also provide a layer of texture and a savoury line. A beautiful dry style wine, ready just in time for Spring.
Aromatic. Peachy. Fresh.- Sold Out -
2021 Arancia, Geographe $25.00
Each year we experiment with a new variation of an orange wine – our Arancia!
This year’s Arancia is made up of Riesling fermented on rouge Muscat à Petit Grains skins. This wine has a nice natural acidity of the dry style Riesling balanced with a touch of spicy sweetness from the Muscat, which also super charges the floral notes and provides a light grip on the finish.
Lively. Crisp. Foral.
2020 Chenin Blanc, Margaret River $30.00
92 Points – James Halliday Wine Companion
Treeton single vineyard Chenin Blanc with 12 hours of skin contact prior to pressing to a mix of tanks and barrels for ferment and maturation for 6 months with regular lees stirring and some malo. Lean, minerally style with layers of structure. The palate presents as a flinty, minerally style with some gentle textural charm and a crunchy acidity on the finish.
2020 Field Blend, Margaret River $25.00
94 Points – Halliday Wine Companion
“It is difficult to draw the line between varieties once this aromatic and layered skin-contact wine is in the mouth, but it ceases to matter when the fruits cascade over one another creating a tidal wave of flavour. Kept in check by chalky phenolics and salty acid, this seems like a pretty perfect summer seafood wine.” Erin Larkin
The ‘Fieldie’ is a skin contact Semillon Sauvignon Blanc field blend (sourced from our organically grown Wallcliffe Vineyard), with a few other friends including Chenin Blanc, Riesling and Arneis. 50% of the fruit went to oak barrels and 50% to tank, where it was matured for 7 months.
This is a perfumed and aromatically focussed wine with a gentle hint of natural reductive tones. In short…. aromatic, vibrant and structured.- Sold Out -
2021 Rosso Bianco, Pemberton Margaret River $35.00
Our 2021 Rosso Bianco (Red / White) is a blend of hand harvested Pemberton Pinot Noir and Margaret River Chardonnay. This juicy drop is a fruit forward, playful style – perfect for those days where you struggle to decide between white or red. It’s a delicate and joyful expression of Pinot Noir from the cooler southern forests, and the queen of grapes – Chardonnay. Delicate and silky red fruits (think raspberry and cherry) beautifully come together with soft spices. Chilled or not chilled, choose your own adventure with the Rosso Bianco – there are no rules.
Vibrant. Edgy. Focused.
2021 Sangiovese, Margaret River $35.00
Again, we continue to the challenge the norm for expected varietals grown within the Margaret River region by producing our third vintage of Sangiovese. Although our vintage in Tuscany seems like a distant past memory, the taste of a great Chianti is still very fresh in our minds and although we are not trying to replicate a Chianti, we are drawing on the traditional techniques we acquired from our time in Tuscany and putting our new world, Margaret River contemporary spin on the varietal.
This is a rare Margaret River expression of this variety and made in tiny amounts. Our Sangiovese aims to showcase a fruit forward wine with present tannins and great natural acidity. By embracing carbonic maceration our Sangiovese earns the title of ‘Juicy Banger’ and is the perfect fresh, juicy wine to go with friends and food.- Sold Out -
‘Miscela’ (Tempranillo Cab Sauv), Western Australia $30.00
90 Points – James Halliday Wine Companion
A magical blend (‘miscela’ in Italian) of vintages, regions and varietals. This is our take on a red blend, and made up of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. This multi varietal, multi regional, and multi vintage wine is a combination of warmer climate Geographe & Margaret River fruit, and spans 2018, 2019 & 2020 vintages. We wanted to present a food focused, savoury wine with some moreish dusty tannins.
The opportunity and freedom to be able to play with a blend of varietals over three different vintages and two different regions created so many options and possibilities. The ability to present a fresh new vintage varietal with an aged varietal presented us with flavours and structure we haven’t been able to achieve in the past.
Savoury. Earthy. Balanced- Sold Out -
2021 Pinot Noir, Pemberton $35.00
2021 marks our forth vintage of making Pinot Noir. After previously making Pinot Noir sourced from a vineyard in Manjimup, this year whilst staying within the Southern Forests region, we have sourced fruit from Pemberton. This decision allowed us access to two different clones of Pinot Noir to play with – 114 and 115. Whilst getting to know this fruit we blended the two blocks of clones together to with the aim of producing a delicate and joyful expression of Pinot Noir in a light, bright, savoury style.
2020 Nebbiolo, Margaret River $50.00
93 Points – James Halliday Wine Companion
This is a rare expression of Margaret River Nebbiolo due to the relative scarcity of the variety within the region and our aim was to showcase the high-toned brightness and vibrancy of fruit whilst still integrating complexity and interest through structure and developed tannins to create an earlier, approachable Nebbiolo thoughtfully balanced with sweetness, savouriness and ultimately freshness.- Sold Out -
2020 Super Margs, Margaret River $50.00
94 Points – Halliday Wine Companion
“Sweet and juicy fruit upfront in a typically Australian way: glossy, juicy, bouncy and right behind the teeth. The prodigious (yet fine) tannins follow up right behind it, drawing out the fruit into a long finish.” Erin Larkin
Our 2020 ‘Super Margs’ draws influence from the highly sought after and respected Super Tuscan wines of Italy, which are made from non-indigenous varieties. After patiently waiting vintage after vintage for Sangiovese fruit, and having finally secured high quality fruit going forward, we decided to make a diversion from the regionally popular Cabernet Merlot blend and instead create a French Italian influenced, modern style wine – Sangiovese Cabernet.
The ripe fruit of the Cabernet Sauvignon provides richness and flavour, while the Sangiovese provides youthfulness, aromatics and overall acid to the blend. This wine is a little heavier than a medium bodied wine and shows off some great fruit and well-integrated tannins.- Sold Out -
