About The Wine
When they aren't making wine in the Hunter Valley (or an Aussie version of Tequila!!), James and Meagan Becker are making wines with a younger crowd in California.
The same ethics and principals apply in their USA gear as with their Aussie stuff: sustainable farming practices, minimal intervention, translating great sites into delicious wines of high impact.
Their Californian Chardonnay from a vineyard almost 1000m above sea level in Mendocino County shows the classic Cali sunshine in the glass with a little bit of attitude underneath.
A little skin contact, great natural acidity and bucket loads of flavour, this is a delicious wine for lovers of fuller-figured Chardonnay.
About M & J Becker
Husband and wife duo, Meagan and James Becker are a part of the new guard based in the Hunter Valley, fighting to reshape the region and its rigid preconceptions surrounding the growth and production of wine.
Making their wines with a focus on minimal intervention, their estate vineyard is currently in the process of conversion to certified organics.
After cutting his teeth in California, James returns to Mendocino County once a year to produce small quantities of single-vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
M&J Becker Wines was realised to focus on Meagan and James passion for the region, and its ability to produce dry–grown and environmentally sustainable wine.
