Origin: Margaret River, Western Australia.
Tasting Note: The Reserve range continues to be the best of what we are able to produce in a given vintage. 100% of the fruit for this Reserve Chardonnay is from our oldest Chardonnay vineyard, the Lagan Estate. The low yielding vineyard produces bunches with characteristic ‘hen and chicken’ architecture typical of the Gingin clone. We encourage natural fermentation on fruit from this vineyard to further emphasise the personality of this wonderful site which is directly adjacent to the winery.
White fleshed stone fruits, lemon/lime and pear puree with underlying Frangipani flowers and cashew adding to the wonderful purity of fruit. The palate is medium bodied and tightly coiled with plenty of latent power. White fleshed nectarine, pears, and zesty grapefruit characters. Precise and pure, the fruit is complimented with subtle textural elements and a pithy grapefruit edge adding structure. The fruit intensity and the high natural acidity reflect the season and provides drive to the wine, focusing it perfectly to a crisp, lingering finish.
Cellaring: Drink now or the next 5-8 years
Food/Dish: Grilled WA Maroon with lemon and dill butter
