The picturesque Brookland Valley property on Margaret River is closely managed through sustainable viticultural practices to thrive with the healthiest vines. A superior single vineyard Chardonnay, barrel fermented and treated to the full luxury of wild yeasts and lees stirring battonage, resplendent with opulent textures, brimming with the inimitable charm of the Australian west.
Available in cartons of six
Brookland Valley retain access to the finest fruit, grown to the best sites in five of Margaret River's six sub regions, providing an impressive palette of flavours from which to craft wine. Exclusively hand picked Chardonnay from the estate vineyard at Wilyabrup, fruit is whole bunch pressed to retain freshness and fineness, transferred to an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak barriques for vinification through wild indigenous yeasts, infusing wonderful texture and complexity. Upon completion, batches are treated to full malolactic on gross lees solids for nine months, occasionally lees stirred battonage for lovely creamy textures and extended length to the palate.
Pale straw green hues. Intense aromatics of pink grapefruit, nectarine and stone fruit, cashews and spice. The palate is richly flavoured, flintyness, lemon zest, nougat and grilled nuts, a full Chardonnay of power and concentration. Barrel fermentation has lent creaminess and palate weight to a wine that finishes with extraordinary length of flavour.
