Lovely #chardonnay from #margaretriver it is the #benchmark for the region and Jancis Robinson tasted it blind and preferred it over Chardonnays from all around the world Top. Margaret River Chardonnay is recognizeable for its concentrated ripe fruit, high acidity and balance between the two. — 8 months ago
Excellent, excellent international chardonnay; restraint but the high-toned expected aromatics cleverly crafted; meal, funk, naturalness, citrus, neat on the nose; palate matured more; brulee, nut roast, yum portion, best aspect is the citrus acid softness; #drinknow ; but window is 2013-2017. #cullen #wa #margaretriver #kevinjohn #chardonnay #biodynamic #13point5alc — 5 years ago
Spring is in the air and in my glass 💛 Introducing one of the recent new releases from Wills Domain Winery in WA’s Margaret River - Mystic Spring 2019 SSB (Semillon Sauvignon Blanc).
Mr Spittoon and I recently got stuck into this SSB while cooking up a BBQ dinner on the deck. Firstly I have to say, this wine is A.MAZ.ING on the nose. So vibrant and fresh. Here are our notes:
Nearly water white with a lemon tinge in the glass. On the nose it is so crisp and refreshing, think passionfruit and honeyed peaches with a fresh zest of lime and hint of florals. Those flavours glide through to the palate with a lick of Sauvy B minerality to go with it.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #gifted #wine #margaretriver — 2 years ago
Wow; how maturing #margaretriver #chardonnay does vary; see recent #cullen #2009 which was brassy, this gleaming green and plenty of it; #cullen restrained, this #capementelle is butch; nose power of smoke or burnt things, bottle age nose not simple, evidence of lees/ mlf from the smoke; palate chunky, lime juice, burnt toast you taste in 30 yo Eden Valley riesling; juicy smoke; rich, not terribly drying, acid taut, 13%, AUD 35, full bodied, no apparent reason for it to fade for a while; contained power. #uncorkedandcultivated #wineandfoodtours — 5 years ago
