Jo Perry's 'lazy bones' winemaking style is yielding some excellent results in Chardonnay from Margaret River. This is fruit picked from Jo's naturally farmed vineyard in the Wallcliffe sub-region. It shows pure, persistant fruit, with only the suggestion of support from a demi-muid and some older barriques. It's a natural feeling Chardonnay of utter class and sophistication. An original and authentic take on a classic Australian wine staple. Mike Bennie rated the 2016 94 points, this is a gorgeous Chardonnay.
What it Tastes Like
"One of those exquisite, clear perfumes, fresh cut stone fruit, marzipan, blanched almonds and faint seaspray. Glossy texture, intense grapefruit-apple orientate flavours. So very silky through its finish then mouth-watering. Such a beautiful, pure-feeling carriage of flavour. Classy as." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Margaret River is recognised as one of the country’s finest wine growing regions. The quality of the region’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay rival the very best in the world. But Margaret River is no two-trick-pony. There, Tempranillo and Malbec are excelling, Touriga Nacional seems to be quite at home, Chenin Blanc is getting serious and even pockets of Nebbiolo are rearing their heads. Watch this space. Who knows what new surprises are just around the corner from this famous region.
Australian Chardonnay is a seductive variety that comes in all shapes and sizes. From the toasty and voluptuous to the lean, flinty and minerally, there is a Chardonnay out there to suit everyone. Australia’s developing prowess with this variety has been marked by the international community with wine writers such as Jancis Robinson marvelling at the outstanding value to be had right across the country. The prestige brands of Margaret River offer wines of deep flavour and power, often crafting fuller-figured Chardonnay of outstanding quality. The cooler-climate wines from the Yarra Valley, Tasmania and the like are more focused and linear, building complexity around a backbone of pristine acidity. Whatever your preference, there is an Australian Chardonnay to enchant all comers.
