About

Plenty has said about Chalmers over the years, but the Heathcote-based family is without question a leader and pioneer in the Australian wine industry.

Their specialty is ‘alternative’, specifically Italian, grape varieties, and through both their Mildura nursery and Heathcote vineyard they have the widest collection of Italian grapes in Australia.

The ‘Chalmers Project’ is a small batch winemaking experiment carried out each vintage by Kim and Tennille Chalmers. This year’s brief was “to showcase some of our most exciting Italian grapes in their naked glory - super-simple small-batch winemaking to express the essence of the variety in these sites.”

These were made in absolutely minuscule volumes, and are not only fascinating and educational, but delicious to drink too.

What It Tastes Like

This Grecanico, also known as Garganega, is a tight, lean and racy little number. The nose is reasonably restrained before an explosion of freshly-cut citrus fruit around a core of pristine, minerally acid. Slightly salty and chewy to close. Interesting, refreshing and great for food.
