2017 is an excellent Chardonnay vintage in Margaret River - likely the best we’ve seen from this vineyard.
About The Wine
Acclaimed Margaret River winemaker Julian Langworthy and wife Alana are turning heads with their own boutique label, Nocturne.
This Chardonnay is their take on the famous regional style, with great success. Born and raised in the region Julian has developed close relationships with some of Margaret River's finest growers, with this Chardonnay coming from a single vineyard in Treeton, planted to some of the region's best-suited clones.
In the hands of Julian, this fruit absolutely sings. It's a polished version of Margaret River Chardonnay with ample weight whilst maintaining and elegant balance.
This is an exciting new addition to the Margaret River Chardonnay landscape.
Nocturne is the personal side label of highly decorated Margaret River winemaker Julian Langworthy and his wife Alana.
Julian has won just about everything there is to win in Australian wine, having taken out Winemaker of the Year for the 2019 Halliday Wine Companion, the 2016 Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy at Royal Melbourne in the space of just a couple of years.
The Nocturne wines are all small production with Julian focusing on quality rather than quantity in this range.
The fruit is procured through Julian's connections with local growers developed over his lifetime in the Margaret River region. If you're looking for hidden gems of Margaret River, the Nocturne wines are it.
