Margaret River Chardonnay 2010

Always have preferred Margaret River wines, especially during the Australian Dark Ages. Fresh, direct, not terribly complex...yet honestly made in a sort of late-‘80s white Burgundy vein. #stellabella #margaretriver — a year ago

Cape Mentelle

Chardonnay 2009

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 — 4 years ago

Kevin John Margaret River Chardonnay 2009

Probably at its delectable best; this #margaretriver #chardonnay from #cullen ; colour with bits of brass says so; and palate has nice brulee-roast nuts; more aged fruit aromas than first stage types; acid taut keeping it medium bodied and no more; a good drink with coral trout; #kevinjohn #biodynamic #13.5% #AUD105 — 4 years ago

Cape Mentelle

Wilyabrup Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2012

Margaret River; blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc; so rounded, so peachy almost possible to detect varietal traits, so the blending is impeccable; streamline of juicy, minty, contained but delectable fruit flavours, wood plays little influence as does tannin; makes it more gulpable for masses; no tannin backbone, just juicy softness; #newwave #drinkaussie #drinkwa #westernaustralia #margaretriver #capementelle #wilyabrup #cmf #AUD50 #13.5% ; Wilyabrup is a sub-region of Margaret River known for top cabernet; interesting way to name a wine. — 4 years ago

Kevin John Margaret River Chardonnay 2011

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 — 4 years ago
