This wine is super cool, just like its new label and its owners!
About The Wine
It's becoming incresingly difficult to find good Margaret River Chardonnay at a price point that you can drink any night of the week.
Enter the new SR Chardonnay from Julian and Alana Langworthy.
This is part of their new Sub-Regional range, exploring the pockets of Margaret River that excite them the most. The Chardonnay fruit for this wine comes from a couple of small vineyards in Treeton to the north-east of Margaret River township.
If you're familiar with the way these two make Chardonnay it will come as no surprise that this is a big, beautiful example of the variety with a touch of sulphide and funk.
It's ripe and open for business. The perfect wine to scratch the MR Chardy itch when it creeps up on you.
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.
