The 2022 vintage in the south west experienced lovely, warm conditions. The mild and dry weather patterns resulted in intensely concentrated fruit flavors.

Margaret River 


Alcohol: 13.2%
pH: 3.35
Titratable acidity: 6.7g/L

The fruit was sourced from a vineyard in the southern outskirts of Margaret River. It was whole bunch pressed directly to a blend of new and seasoned oak barriques. Each barrel was filled sequentially and then blended, after spending 8 months on lees.


Aromas of matchstick, citrus blossom and curry leaf with dusty, cedary notes and subtle hints of oak. This medium-bodied, beautifully balanced wine displays wonderfully rich, grapefruit zest characters and pith with a delightful complexity from the lees and oak. The pristine fruit has a purity that lingers with an alluring saline, oyster shell finish and persistent acid line. It is the perfect holy trilogy of oak, fruit and funk.


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

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.
