The Fawn is a luscious and buttery style of Chardonnay, reminiscent of the bigger ‘old school’ Chardonnays of yesteryear.
Winemaker Alex Schulkin wants that warm, chewy texture of full-bodied Chardonnay, and in the 2016 version of Fawn, he’s got it.
This is had no additions of any kind during the winemaking process. It’s simply and unapologetically a rich and toasty style, which remains lively and vibrant in the palate. It’s just a joy to drink.
Only 60 dozen made.
What It Tastes Like
Oh yeah, there you go. Wan’t a rich and toasty Chard? Look no further. This is all peaches and cream, a hint of ripe pineapple. All matter of whipped butter and creamy, nutty goodness. It’s thick though the mouth and lathers on the flavour, but it finishes bright and crisp. Great rendition of Chardy for those who yearn for this kind of style.
CHARDONNAY, ADELAIDE HILLS We love the journey this little one is going through; The 4th year for Fawn and sure thing is - she’s getting more mature. Missed the old-school Chardonnay? So did we. Thankfully, our Fawn turned out that way this year. Stylistically, it’s the 90’s: rich, full, buttery, but still lively and playful.

About the Producer
The Other Right
The Other Right is a fantastic artisan producer from McLaren Vale. Winemaker Alex Schulkin and his partner Galit are crafting clean, premium, natural wines from organically vineyards in the Vale and Adelaide Hills. The Wines are excellent examples of quality with a natural philosophy.
The Adelaide Hills may be the most energised wine region in the country. The sense of exploration and creativity amongst the tribe of talented young winemakers in this region is unparralelled. The Hills has become crucible of Australian wine talent, offering an array of varieties, from classics such as Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to new varieties like Nebbiolo and Grüner Veltliner for the younger generation to play with. Every vintage brings new colour and complexity to the rich wine, food and produce culture of this cool climate 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.
