Just released 2021 Parterre Chardonnay

My goodness what a bumper release this is. The critics have had to raid the thesaurus to find even more superlatives than usual for these wines and we are delighted to be sharing them with you. 



Winner - James Halliday Chardonnay Challenge GOLD

WA Good Food Guide Top 25 Wines of 2022

"Pristine, pure and very fine-boned house style of Chardonnay coupled with the cooler year that was 2021, and we are met by a wine with poise, precision and finesse in spades. What a beauty the 2021 Parterre Chardonnay is. Juicy, glass-shard acidity is couched in very soft, enveloping orchard fruit, and spooling out through the finish is a string of briney acidity. This is a gorgeous wine, perhaps shorter lived than some of its predecessors, but it will never hang around long enough for us to find out."

- Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 95 points

"Plenty of perfume, a sort of thyme and lavender thing, cashew and almond, a little spicy oak. It’s tight and zesty, lime and pink grapefruit, maybe some green apple, intense acidity, a fine powdery/flinty texture, and a tight and racy grapefruit finish of excellent length. A lot of energy and vigour, and best with a year or so more in bottle to settle."
- The Wine Front, 94+ points
