About The Wine

South Africa has long been pursuing excellence in Chenin Blanc, some of their finer examples are considered some of the best in the world.

Perhaps it should come as no surprise that a South African is taking Australian Chenin Blanc to the next level - ladies and gentleman, this is one serious Chenin Blanc.

In an effort to highlight the variety's ability to articulately communicate terroir, Tripe.Iscariot owner/winemaker Remi Guise is releasing a pair of Margaret River subregional expressions of this often maligned grape. They were stunning to try back to back. This, the Wilyabrup wine, was our favourite.

It is a wine of immediate impact, bold and full flavoured. It has tension and depth, all in all, it is a remarkable achievement. 

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

The Wine Front

"Ultra fragrant in perfume, shows frangipani, green herb, lemon blossom characters and a faint whiff of sea spray. Lean and racy in the palate, sleek but shaped with fine chalky texture, inward concentration of green apple and offers a strong belt of racy, saline acidity. Moves at pace, precisely. This is so refreshing, so good to drink." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

The wine was barrel aged for 10 months, during which the barrels underwent battonage every two weeks. The wine was then removed from barrel, clarified and bottled.
