Chenin Blanc is not the first grape one thinks about when seeking a bottle from the coastal Margaret River wine region. But this wine makes a strong case for planting more. Great structure with bright acid and the classic notes of chamomile, quince and stone fruit we associate Chenin with, in a moderate climate. I strongly urge you to try it with rillettes on fresh baguette.
Opaque purple in colour with a cedary, spicy, blackberry nose with herbal notes; full-bodied, dry and savoury, richly extracted, firmly structured blackberry and dried herb flavours.
Opaquely deep purple. A “black” wine: aromas of black pepper, black cherry and black liquorice. Medium tannins and acidity. Fruit now starting to fade but still a bomb. Drink now.
Extremely deep intense purple colour with a minerally, spicy, creamy, sandalwood nose of blackberries and herbal notes; medium-bodied, dry and fruity with lively acidity and a firm tannic finish.
Very Burgundian in style; pale straw in colour with a slightly reductive nose of lemon and apple; medium-bodied, dry, elegant, beautifully balanced, lemony-green apple and white peach flavour with a long, fresh finish.
Extremely deep, intense purple colour. With a concentrated, spicy, creamy, sandalwood nose of blackberries with herbal notes; medium-bodied, dry and fruity with lively acidity and a firm tannic finish. Drinking well now.
