Halls Gap Vineyard was planted 1969, along the steep eastern slopes and parched rocky crags of Grampians Ranges, at the very beginning of a renaissance in Victorian viticulture. Since early establishment in the 1860s by the noble Houses of Seppelt and Bests, the region had earned the most elite peerage, a provenance of extraordinary red wines, bursting with bramble opulence and lined with limousin tannins. The Halls Gap property had long been respected as a venerable supplier to the nation's most illustrious brands. Seppelt and Penfolds called on harvests from Halls Gap for their finest vintages. Until 1996, when it was acquired by the late, great Trevor Mast, who was very pleased to bottle Hall Gap's fruit behind the exhalted label of Mt Langi Ghiran.

Swings Roundabouts Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
Swings & Roundabouts retain access to some of Western Australia's best vineyards. Their rounder and more deliberate style of Chardonnay targets fresh drinking rather than oak overkill. The pick of Margaret River's fruit is vinified into a finely honed Chardonnay wine with effusive stonefruit/ apple characters and brisk vegetative acidity, made even more attractive by a course of luxurious barrel ferments, adding texture and infusing the wine with warming vanilla spice. A treat alongside prawns or chicken caesar, Swings & Roundabouts is an easy to appreciate aperitif style.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
A collation of fruit from the estate's Swings vineyard alongside parcels from some of the most ardent growers, vinified and augmented by ageing in a third of French oak to complement it's creamy palate, loads of fresh fruit fragrance and regional Chardonnay characters. Having earned a reputation as one of West Australia's leading winemakers, based around a young and enthusiastic team, Swings & Roundabouts are accomplished at crafting the vigorous Margaret River styles. Picked throughout the cool of night, grapes are cold pressed and clear juice fermented to natural yeasts. Half of the wine is treated to oak barrel and matured several months under the estate cellars. Alcohol 13.0%
Pale green to light luminous straw hues. Lifted attractive melon fruits on the bouquet with hints of lifted nectarine, subtle vanillin oak in the background adds complexity and depth to the overall impression. Fruit filled, dry and medium bodied to taste, freshly cut orchard fruit and melon flavours lead to a generous and creamy middle palate, textured, structured and fine, resolving on a persistent, clean and lingering finish.
