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.

About tripe.Iscariot

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.

Critic Reviews

94Points
The Wine Front

"This is amazing wine to describe ‘texture’ in white wines. Texture! Chalky, faintly chewy, almost stony. So good. Scents of green apple, flint, mixed citrus peel, faint grassy notes. Superb. Palate delivers more of the same as bouquet, let’s say, but it’s all about that stony, salty, mineral stuff, when you look past that amazing chalkiness and pucker. Refreshment factor is high, complexity too, detail of great interest. This is a fantastic, unique, detailed expression. I wouldn’t be missing wines from this producer." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Hand-picked Chardonnay grapes, 25% of which are fermented as whole-bunches, submerged under un-clarified juice extracted from the other 75% which were cold-pressed as whole-bunches.

Towards the end of the fermentation the juice/wine was removed from around the whole-bunches and the mostly fermented whole-bunches were basket pressed and combined with removed juice/wine.

The wine then finished fermentation in oak barrels. The wine was barrel aged for 9 months, during which the barrels underwent battonage every two weeks. The wine was then removed from barrel, clarified and bottled.

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)
ABV : 13.0%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2024
Bottle Size : 750ml
