After founding Mornington's eminent Moorooduc Estate and decades crafting the most memorable vintages for Mornington's leading brands, Richard McIntyre established a tiny, single hectare vineyard, on a prominent, high elevation site at Arthur's Seat, with a view to producing limited yields of the most exquisite small batch wines. The techniques of choice are wild yeast ferments, minimal intervention and good French oak, with a nod to traditional Burgundian practices, which allow the wines to speak of provenance, express their specificity of clone and articulate their sense of place. There's not much Bellingham made but every bottle passes through the hands of.. Limited editions by the master of moorooduc»

With each vintage, they earmark small parcels of the most exceptional Barossa fruit, to be treated to a course of traditional open ferments and term of age in the finest French oak.

Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography,.. Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»

West Cape Howe Styx Gully Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Great Southern Western Australia
Pure elegant Chardonnay, taught, terrific and trim, with a sense of West Australian vibrancy, an exemplar of the outstanding potential that Great Southern represents as a winegrowing region. The idyllic growing climes of Mount Barker, restrained yields, exacting standards of viticulture and an artisanal vinification are what make West Cape Howe a truly memorable experience. The most stylish parcels of Chardonnay are reserved for Styx, a clean textural wine with effusive citrus character and attractive weight of fruit before a wonderfully crisp finish.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$311.00
From vineyards 250 metres above the Southern Ocean, Chardonnay is harvested off the choicest estate grown blocks, picked to a schedule determined by perfect physiological ripeness. Grapes are crushed, the clean and turbid juices are racked into a selection of new and seasoned oak barrels for inoculation. Batches are monitored over the course of twelve day vinification at cooler temperatures, to preserve delicate fruit flavours. The finished wine remains in barrel for nine months on fermentation lees to develop a more textural mouthfeel. Individual barrels are all tasted and only those which can best articulate the essential Styx Chardonnay style are included into the final wine.
Mid to deep straw yellow hue with hints of olive. Nougat, white peaches and lemon zest bouquet over notes of well integrated oak. A medium weight palate showing beautiful grapefruit and citrus flavours supported by a mineral texture. Great persistence of flavour that's long and refreshing at the finish. Wonderful drinking right now alongside game fish or deep sea cod.
