Miles From Nowhere Best Block Margaret River Chardonnay
The palate expresses a purity of good fruit with flavours of crisp nectarine hints of apricot and lemon curd. Careful oak integration through gentle stirring on yeast lees has resulted in a desirable rich and creamy palate. A generous finish of hazelnuts, nougat and with a tight lemon acidity to keep the many layers of flavour together in a seamless finish.

Silkwood Estate The Leaf Chardonnay
Boutique winery Silkwood Estate from Pemberton, Western Australia has produced a beautifully fresh Chardonnay showing crisp citrus characters with notes of straw balanced by a smooth, creamy and nutty finish. Drinking beautifully now, but will continue to age well for a further 5-10 years.
Many would agree that Chardonnay is the worlds most popular grape variety, lovingly known as winemakers wine. Cosmo Chardonnay is pale straw in colour with some faint green hues. This light summer drink is a delightful wine with peach and brioche aromas. It is soft and slightly sweet, with a broad but well-balanced palate suggesting subtle use of spicy French oak. About a third of the wine was fermented in French oak, with extended time on yeast lees adding palate weight and complexity. As Chardonnay is a versatile variety, it can be partnered with foods such as aged cheese, roast turkey, mushrooms, pork belly and scallops.
Appearance Deep straw. Aroma Obvious fruits are peaches and melons, there is an evident depth in the aroma and some vanilla notes. Palate Generous and round fruits, carried by elegant and restrained oak. There is a refreshing crispness to the finish which draws you back for more.
Jarvis Estate Chardonnay
The aroma is restrained with passion fruit and a hint of citrus. The passion fruit flavours follow through on the palate married with fresh pineapple characters. This fresh, fruit-driven style is best consumed chilled. It is a great food match with chicken, richer seafood dishes or simply enjoy on its own.
Snake + Herring Tough Love Chardonnay
The Snake + Herring brand is a wine safari searching for remarkable grapes from West Australian Vineyards. The Search has begun, and our grape balloon manned by Snake (our winemaker) and Herring (our navigator) represent this. The southwest of WA is a viticultural treasure map as there are vineyard jewels scattered throughout. We seek for blocks within vineyards that really shine; they may seem dull when diluted by the bordering lesser dirt. The search is to find and polish these often overlooked gems and present a treasure chest of different jewels: pristine, crystalline Rieslings; crisp, radiant, multi-faceted Chardonnays; alluring, perfumed Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon; dark, exotic, hedonistic Shiraz; brilliant, regal displays of Cabernets and blends.
