The Parterre Chardonnay has been made from 100% Gin-Gin clone, which we feel produces fruit with higher acidity, and more intensity of flavour with later ripening. This also allows for picking at slightly lower Baume (potential alcohol), resulting in a wine with finer structure and more delicate fruit.
"Floral and bright. Big and round. Bony and explosive. Worth comparing it with a Burgundy Grand Cru? I also tasted it at the '50 years of Margaret River' tasting where it looked very good too. Drink 2018 -2025"

“I’ve tasted this wine three times (twice blind) over the last couple of months and each time I’ve really loved its distinctive personality. It’s in the lighter, nervier, more elegant Margaret River spectrum, offering vivid citrusy flavours, wild botanical perfume and a touch of tangy grip on the finish. It’s super-complex and delicious, and would have to be one of the best-value Margaret River chardonnays on the market.”
