Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
Clairault was the sixth Margaret River estate to plant vines, it remains one of the oldest privately owned operations within the premier Wilyabrup appellation. The pristine, undulating property, situated less than four kilometres inland from Cape Clairault peninsula and 120 meters above sea level, is endowed with bountiful creeks, natural springs and some of the oldest native forests in the southwest. The Clairault team take great care of local flora and fauna, mother nature reciprocates, in the form of intensely flavoured Chardonnay with refined balance and exquisite style.
Bright straw yellow hues. White pears, jasmine and brioche, subtle wet granite notes. Oyster shell and white pear, a medley of texture and flavours, over a delicate yet firm core of structured oak and ripe fruit, the palate remarkable for its purity, stonefruits and nectarine have never been crisper and fresh, a juicy length of complexity, resolving on a lasting, textural mineral finish.
