2022 Apricus Hill Chardonnay

12 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.

Color: Color is a bright clear steely white with youthful green hues.

Palate: 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.

Nose: 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)

From the Denmark sub-region of the Great Southern in Western Australia, this wine is limited to free run juice only, which is fermented in a mix of new and seasoned French oak 500-litre puncheons with nine months oak maturation to follow. Pale lemon hue, we have notes of citrus and some very gentle stonefruit while lemon and lemon curds dominate at this early stage. A hint of vanillin oak with some nutmeg too. Good balance and impressive intensity of flavour runs the full length of the wine supported by fine acidity. There is also focus, drive and persistence. As we move to the palate, we see more stonefruit notes emerge. Enjoyable now and over the next five to six years. Good drinking.

91 pts - Australian Wine Review - Andrew Graham

It’s interesting to see how golden, peaches-in-juice style Chardonnay is making a comeback, and the Great Southern wines from Apricus Hill are always a bit richer and fuller. This Apricus Hill Chardonnay 2022 is all mid-palate ripe fruit richness, with restricted malo on the finish keeping things tight enough. Sunny style and done well. It’s a smidgen obvious but a good balance between peachy fruit with a streak of butter and then grapefruit acidity. Best drinking: soonish. 17.5/20, 91/100. 13.5%, $40.
