Jim Chatto is one of Australia's most highly regarded living winemakers. Some of his recent releases may well come to be seen as some of the best wines of his generation. His winemaking ethos is simple and site driven: the very model of modern Australian wine.
The Chatto wines are the culmination of Jim's long-term love affair with Tasmanian Pinot Noir. It took him six years to find the perfect site and the long search has definitely paid off.
The 2017 release of the Chatto Pinot Noir is gorgeous. Built around complex layers of reduction, power and fruit purity,the 2017 releases are his arguably his finest to date.
With 95 points from Campbell Mattinson, this release has been under high demand by collectors with an eye for quality. Only tiny amounts are available. Lovers of the finest Pinot Noir should not hesitate.
About Chatto Wines
Jim Chatto is revered as one of the finest winemakers currently working in Australia.
His recent reinvigoration at Mount Pleasant in the Hunter Valley has received phenomenal critical acclaim, as has his personal Tasmanian project, Chatto wines.
After purchasing a plot of land that Jim describes as "right on the edge of viticultural possibility", planting began in 2007.
In only a short amount of time, this site has produced some extraordinary wines and looks set to become one of the Apple Isle most prized viticultural assets.
