This chardonnay fruit is sourced from fruit grown on the Lenton Brae estate vineyard in Wilyabrup. It offers a contrast to there chardonnays, in being more accessible.

Hand Picked? Tick. Whole Bunch Pressed? Tick. Wild Yeast Fermented? Tick. Single Vineyard Chardonnay? Of Course. 

A fine example of what the Margaret River region has become renowned for: premium chardonnay with elegance and finesse. 

This awesome Chardonnay nails the balance of bright acidity, texture, richness and a pleasant balance of fruit and oak, two characteristics that lend a welcome versatility with food pairings. 

In the land that tends to OD on oak, Ed Tomlinson allowed the natural fruit flavours to shine by ageing it in new and aged French Oak for 9 months. It has the right amount of oak on the nose along with aromas of peaches, grapefruit, flinty freshness and a dash of nuttiness. 

It’s the kind of wine that chardy fans would revel in. A perfectly balanced Chardonnay that over delivers on price.

 

THE CHARDONNAY STYLE

Chardonnay is the most diverse wine grape and most planted wine grape in the world. It was born in the Burgundy region of France. It's either oak aged or unoaked and is used for everything from rich Buttery Chardonnay to a zesty and light Blanc de Blanc Sparkling wine. The beauty with this variety is that no two places that grow the variety produce the same wine. Gone are the days of an oak bombed styled Chardonnay.
