2017 McHenry Hohnen Calgardup Brook Chardonnay

Regular price £198.00 Sale price £180.00
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 cooler conditions of the 2017 season have created a wine of great purity and finesse. Our 2017 Calgardup Brook Vineyard Chardonnay shows all the hallmarks typical of this block located by the Indian Ocean. Oyster shell and sea spray notes are immediately evident on the nose, followed by delicate nectarine and nashi pear flesh. Beeswax and delicious nougat lead to a flinty complexity - the result of wild fermentation with full solids and extended time on lees. The saline acidity is well balanced by excellent texture and an attractive chalky grip. A mineral Chardonnay highlighting the terroir of this southern Margaret River site.
