Margaret River

Our Price: $36.99 / bottle (RRP: $47.00) Case: 6 x 750ml

'The soaring intensity and precision of the wine obliterates any comment about the oak. It is one of those uncommon chardonnays that demands you give it time.'
98 Points - James Halliday

  • This Single Block Chardonnay has been produced using hand-picked fruit from the Watershed Estate vineyard in Margaret River.

    This is the pinnacle wine in the Watershed portfolio, and appears to be setting some extraordinary benchmarks along the way. 98 Points from James Halliday, and 95 Points from Ray Jordan thus far, and plenty more plaudits to come.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Terroir, place, selection. Parcels of fruit and length and flavour concentration, complexity and intensity achieved through carefully selected hand picked fruit. These wines are finely crafted with extended maturation and fermentation in new and one year old French Oak barrels to deliver wines of outstanding quality.

    TASTING NOTES

    The wine exhibits intense aromas of citrus and stone fruit accompanied with notes of spice and roasted cashew nuts. On the palate, the dense creamy texture is complemented by grapefruit and mineral notes, followed by a long nutty finish.

  • REVIEWS

    'The soaring intensity and precision of the wine obliterates any comment about the oak. It is one of those uncommon chardonnays that demands you give it time, the more the merrier. Grapefruit is the masthead, but it gathers around it a suite of flavours that keep its energy and drive on track.'
    98 Points - James Halliday

    'A classy chardonnay made using wild yeasts and 100 per cent barrel fermentation. Deep and penetrating creamy fruit with a nutty grapefruit minerally edge. It’s tightly framed but the fruit is starting to emerge. Perhaps the best under this range. The length on the palate is most impressive. CELLAR – 8 years.'
    95 Points - Ray Jordan
