About

Though he has become known for his weird and wonderful styles of wine, Brad Wehr, at his core, still loves the classic Margaret River.

With the Mantra series “It’s all Margaret River, all small batch, all traditional Margies varieties.”.

His Muse Chardonnay is the flagship white wine in the range. With fruit from two small independent producers in the famous sub region of Wilyabrup. Some of the biggest names in Australian Chardonnay get their fruit from this small microclimate, and most of them use only one clone, the Gin Gin clone. Brad’s done very well to get a hold of this fruit.

Gin Gin and Wilyabrup, and Brad Wehr’s commitment to quality in this range, have yielded a wine that James Halliday said has “greater class and presence than the other wines in Brad’s portfolio.” and gave it 95 points.

We thought it looked brilliant at the moment. The essence of what Margaret River Chardonnay is all about.

What It Tastes Like

This isn’t the old school oak bomb Margie Chard, this comes with more than a touch of class. Flinty and minerally on opening, it unwinds itself in the glass to reveal fresh citurs and nectarines. It’s a linear style but with plenty of “flesh on the bones”. The fruit has gobbled up all the oak. Looks clean and fresh. Pretty serious stuff.
