About

About the Wine

This is an organically farmed Chenin Blanc from a small vineyard in Willyabrup, Margaret River.

Jo Perry, the winemaker and her viticulturist partner Jim have got their priorities right, focusing first and foremost on sourcing high quality fruit, before worrying about what to do with it in the winery. The fruit is handpicked and whole bunch pressed straight into barrel for wild ferment, where it sits on its lees before being bottled with no fining or filtration.

It's a lovely, unique expression of this loveable variety, and if you like your whites with a bit of texture and oomph, then this will be right up your alley.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Custard apples, lemon sherbet and honeyed top notes. It's so smooth, gliding along with a waxy and and gently creamy middle. Honey and apples make a show on the finish. Chenin which is about texture, not just a crisp, dry white. Should be more like it. - Different Drop Wine Team
