About The Wine
If you want Chardonnay with some flesh and weight, this is one of the best value you are going to find in Margaret River.
Bruce Dukes' obsession with Chardonnay clones has brought him to the conclusion that the Gin Gin clone is the best suited in Margaret River. As such, he uses this Gin Gin exclusively with all his Chardonnays, searching for sites where the variety does best in his region.
His mid-tier Floris Chardonnay shows ample barrel complexity alongside delicious stone fruit characters and a hint of grapefruit.
Classic Margaret River Chardonnay and great buying at this price
