Profile

From acclaimed winemaker David Hohnen, who co-founded Cape Mentelle in Margaret River in 1970 and founder Murray McHenry

"Halliday Wine Companion - Australian Winery of the Year 2022 & 2023"

100% Calgardup Brook. This vineyard lies just inland from the coast. Its sandy, schisty soils are well weathered. These chardonnay vines run east-west with a slightly sloping northern aspect.

The nose opens with notes of sea spray, spiced pears, pink grapefruit and delicate wet stone. Wild fermentation with full solids provides flinty complexity and extended time on lees adds intrigue and excellent length to the palate. A distinctive saline acidity and attractive chalk-like structure complement the mineral nature of this unique Southern Margaret River vineyard near the Indian Ocean.

Critic Awards

Light yellow colour with a reserved, restrained bouquet of beeswax, grapefruit pith, malt, honey, restrained nuttiness and a hint of snuffed candle. In the mouth, it's reserved for this region, with good intensity, tightly focused, linear and long. A more European style chardonnay with restraint, structure, savouriness and subtle complexities of a more worked (as opposed to simple fruit) style of chardonnay. Long follow-through with energising acidity. This could reward cellaring.
