Great Southern, WA

An easy-to-love, refreshing white with plenty of interest. Go Chenin!



About The Wine

The Express Winemakers haven't been around all that long, 2011 was their maiden vintage, but in that short amount of time they've developed quite a following.

This single vineyard Chenin Blanc is a great example of their mission to find the best vineyards for each variety in the Great Southern and showcase each site's unique character.

It was all hand-picked and whole bunch pressed into old barrels, giving lovely texture and mouthfeel to balance the zippy acidity from the cooler 2017 vintage. A lovely, refreshing white with plenty of interest.

Go Chenin!

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Green apples, underripe bananas and a hint of salted caramel popcorn on the nose. Feels laid back in style, flowing effortlessly along the palate with nicely rounded tropical fruits and cleansing acidity whipping through on closing. Interesting, refreshing and easy to enjoy. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

The 2017 Vintage was one of the latest on record in the Great Southern and had a rather cool and wet beginning. We harvested the Chenin Blanc in my vineyard in three separate picks, with an intended fourth, which didn’t happen as the grapes rotted on the vine.

All the wine for the 2017 Chenin Blanc was from the third pick that was whole bunch pressed and wild fermented to dryness in old oak barrels. The cool vintage ensured low alcohols and cracking acidity with varietal aromas of green apples and macadamias and a mouthwateringly saline finish.
