Made from a small 1.1 hectare site planted to clone 95 Chardonnay, this vineyard is prized for producing racy, crunchy Chardonnay at low baume levels. Again the great 2017 vintage shines through and has produced a wine of superb intensity and drive. Lifted acacia and preserved lemon aromas lead to a palate that is superbly vibrant and crystalline. The Block 6 has the same winemaking and ageing as the Block 5 but is markedly different-more racy and linear. A Puligny to the other Block 5's Chassagne!
Despite viticulture being barely 50 years old (with the first vines being planted in the 1960's), the Margaret River wine region has firmly established itself as a global rising star. The climate of the region is so befitting to winemaking (and similar to the French region) that it is commonly called Australia's answer to Bordeaux.
The vignerons of Australia's west coast have quickly harnessed this ancient terroir, which is suited perfectly to viticulture, and now produce 25% of Australia's premium wine. Amongst other varietals, the elegant Cabernets, Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blanc of the Margaret River won't disappoint even the most discerning of tastebuds.
"White flowers, almond, flint, pink grapefruit and lime, exotic spices folded in. Light to medium-bodied, fine bones, a fennel/fresh mint coolness, zest and energy, yet still silky and composed. It's graceful and long, with a quinine laced aftertaste. You'd be pretty well set with a glass of this, and a platter of marron and prawns." 94 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front"
