MARGARET RIVER CHARDONNAY 2018

REGION NOTES

Climatically, Australia’s most reliable wine region, not to mention one of its best known, Margaret River has proven to be the ideal home for Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, producing distinctive wines of powerful structure and finesse. WINEMAKING NOTES Premium parcels of grapes were specially selected from a range of sites across the Margaret River region, from Karridale in the south through to Wilyabrup in the north, to create a well balanced, medium weight style in the citrus mould. Matured for a short time in a variety of French oak barriques, twenty per cent new. We deliberately avoided the traditional secondary malolactic fermentation in order to retain the wine’s long fine acidity. Enjoy now to 2024. TASTING NOTE A bright, mid-weight, white peach-accented, gently oaked wine grown on selected sites across Australia’s highest performing Chardonnay region.

FOUNDER’S NOTE With over forty years of winemaking experience I’ve learnt there are two important elements when it comes to creating great wine. Firstly, the best wines show a true sense of the land – that ideal combination of grape variety and region. Secondly, they taste even better when shared with friends. I hope you enjoy drinking these wines as much as we enjoyed making them. ROBERT OATLEY, AO BEM (1928-2016)
