About

Hearts of Oak winemaker, Jacob Allen, has a very simple mission, "... to make the best example of Australian chenin possible." He's making a very good fist at it by sourcing some of the best Chenin Blanc fruit in WA. This wine comes from the same vineyard as Jo Perry's Dormilona Chenin Blanc, a biodynamically farmed vineyard in Willyabrup, Margaret River. The winemaking is inspired by the wines of Vouvray, the fruit is pressed straight to old French oak, with the lees regularly stirred throughout to build in layers of texture and interest. The 2016 is another of the fine examples of Chenin coming out of this region, and one that will thrill lovers of this often over-looked variety.

What it Tastes Like

Complex aromas of beez wax, smoke, soft white peaches and a little hint of vanilla. It's toasty and warm, round in body, and full flavoured. A thread of fine acidity weaves through the fruit giving lift and freshness to the mouth filling fruit. One for Chenin enthusiasts.
