2021 Apricus Hill Chardonnay

6 bottles

In stock.

This Chardonnay has been made with only the “free run” juice – the first run, finest quality juice without the bitterness and phenolics associated with the grape skin. The juice was fermented in new and second use French oak 500 litre puncheons with some grape solids giving the wine a complex savoury note. It matured in oak for 9 months. Colour is a bright clear steely white with youthful green hues. Nectarine and mandarin are complemented by a textured savoury mid palate with hints of melon and spicy vanillin oak leading to a long crisp grapefruit finish. A vibrant lifted nose of citrus and stone fruits with savoury cashew notes and hints of gunflint and toasty French oak. This wine will improve with up to 10 years careful cellaring.

92 pts - Ken Gargett (Wine Pilot)

A single vineyard Chardy from the Pemberton/Great Southern region of Western Australia, this is an impressive wine, even if quite young at this stage. Its was made from ‘free run’ juice which was fermented in new and second use French oak 500-litre puncheons with maturation for 9 months. Sunlit gold in colour, there is a tight and refined nose with gentle notes of stonefruits and hints of almonds, cumquats and orange rinds. The oak, with its vanillin touches, is there but it is melding well. Seamless in style, this is nicely balanced and will be even better as the oak integrates a little more. With good focus and length, this will provide fine drinking over the next five to six years and the score will surely rise.

90pts - Kim Brebach (BWU20)

A new winery for me, from Pemberton in the Great Southern. The whites from here tend to be shy and delicate, and so it is here. Nothing wrong with that, but the flavours are a bit light on and the wine a bit tight. Lean but not mean, will need time. Would be good with seafood.
