Bronze Medal – Geographe Wine Show 2022
95 points – Ray Jordan WA Wine: Review


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.

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.
