''Bright straw-green; brimming with life and energy, the fragrant bouquet of citrus and white flowers, the palate intense and very long; the flavours are spun around beacons of white peach and grapefruit, the barrel ferment inputs simply adding complexity.'' 95 Points, James Halliday's Wine Companion
Woodlands Chardonnay is a fruit-forward earlier drinking Margaret River style displaying ripe stone-fruit cut by fresh vibrant acidity and supported by lightly spiced vanillin oak. Fruit is sourced from the Wilyabrup sub region of Margaret River. The wine is barrel fermented then racked to tank. A minor component is matured in barrel, before the components are blended together filtered and bottled.
The wine opens up with sweet black and red fruits of mulberry, black currant and cranberry, and a whiff of lavender. Medium bodied with soft velvety tannins, layers of fine fruit on the palate with chocolate and cedar notes from the oak. The finish is long and savoury.
