This is a fantastic, unique, detailed expression.
About The Wine
The wines from Remi Guise carry a wild and raucous quality. Each wine in the stable comes with its own distinct personality derived from the soils where the fruit is grown.
In the case of the 2017 tripe.Iscariot Brawn Chardonnay, that personality is aristocratic Margaret River Chardonnay meets wild thing ruffian.
This is a complex, furiously textural wine with immense amounts of drinking pleasure to unleash. Mike Bennie was seduced by it in his 94 point review noting that, "I wouldn’t be missing wines from this producer."
Margaret River fans will know that outstanding Chardonnay from this region doesn't come along at this price often. Get stuck in.
Remi Guise is starting something very compelling in Western Australia.
His idea for tripe.Iscariot centres around the thesis that from 'berry to stalk' the whole of the plant should be used in the winemaking process.
No waste, no 'cleaning up' of the wines. Driving to make the most character filled and unique wines that any site can produce.
The wines are fascinating and complex alt-stylings of undervalued Margaret River varieties.
Dig in, this is a project to keep a close eye on.
