About

The Clayface wines are a micro batch winemaking project from innovative Margaret River winemaker, Josephine Perry.

The Clayface Chardonnay is picked the same day as the Dormilona Chardonnay. A small portion of fruit is kept separate, basket pressed directly to terracotta amphora and left alone to gently go through natural ferment and malo. A whisper of sulphur the only addition on its way to bottle.

A total of 500L of this wine was made. A tiny release of this incredibly charismatic Chardonnay and it is in hot demand. Strictly limited to two bottles per customer.

What It Tastes Like

“Surprisingly spicy scents showing ginger, lemongrass, then the cavalcade of citrus and green apple juice and a whiff of rain on warm concrete. Bright and lemony to taste, almost brittle in acid profile and yet has that texture of soft, cloudy apple juice. Has that wild edge that is so charismatic, but backs it up with electric chardonnay flavours. Lovely stuff here.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
