Beautiful expressions of one of the superior white grape varieties on earth...
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 Karridale wine, is a tighter, leaner, more mineral-driven style. Excellent release from Remi. He's on point with his pet variety once again.
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.
