WINEMAKING NOTES
The fruit for the vermentino was hand-picked from a small vineyard on the northern outskirts of Harvey. The fruit is lively and characteristic of all the wonderful flavor nuances you can expect from a vermentino. Pure soft pressed free-run juice, fermented with neutral yeast EC118, cool fermented for 3 weeks in stainless steel, filtered and bottled in May 2022.


TASTING NOTES
Expect citrus rind, and lemon sherbet on the nose, aromatics of talc, and a lingering clean minerality on the palate, exuding sherbet powder with a refreshing pristine finish and citron press.

AWARDS
84 Points – Perth Royal Wine Show 2022


★★★★★

Gained top points from Matthews, who thought it: “A different spin on chenin blanc with new oak vanilla bean notes on the nose. Surprisingly, works quite well on the palate. Glossy green apple, baked pastries and crème fraiche. Nice line and
length, with seamless acidity.” I loved its apple/stone fruit combination, apple-skin texture and length.

Score - 95

Nikola Estate Regional Chenin Blanc 2021
★★★★

Appealed to me with its positive, gooseberry and feijoa aromas. The palate’s round, with flavours turning more to stonefruits. It finishes with subtle sweetness and good ength. Honan noted, “A subtle lick of volatile acidity on the inhale. Saline sweetness on the palate, lemon and passionfruit. Moreishness. Great carry, compels another sip.
