  • THE BRIEF
  • Amelia Park is a boutique producer located in the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia. They focus on producing fine wines of exceptional quality, combining leading edge techniques with traditional winemaking values and practices. Winemaker, Jeremy Gordon, believes that his success lies in a hands-on approach to every step of the process, attention to detail and an unquenchable passion for making consistently outstanding wines. This philosophy has seen Jeremy receive numerous awards throughout his career including Australia's most coveted award, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy.

    Since launching in 2009, Amelia Park have been quick to make their mark, winning trophies at the most prestigious wine shows both domestically and internationally, as well as being awarded 5 Red Stars in the 2016 edition of James Halliday's Wine Companion. This award confirms Amelia Park on the list of the Best Wineries in the Margaret River region and in the top 5% of wineries in Australia.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • The fruit is hand picked early in the morning to retain freshness, then placed into the cool-room to chill further overnight. The next morning, the whole bunches are tipped into the press. The free run juice is gently pressed off to a stainless steel holding tank and allowed to settle naturally overnight. The slightly cloudy juice is then racked to a mixture of new, second and third use French oak barrels.

    Fermentation occurs spontaneously and completed via wild fermentation. Once primary fermentation is concluded the wine is sulfured to ensure freshness and that secondary fermentation does not take place.

    The wine is aged for nine months in barrel, with occasional stirring of lees to gain complexity and texture prior to bottling.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Our best parcel of Chardonnay is reserved for this wine, it is delicate and pure with aromas of stone fruits and citrus blossom. The palate is elegant with exceptional balance and persistence. Matured in French oak for nine months this wine will drink beautifully now or can be cellared for the long term.

    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    The best estate grapes are handpicked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented. White nectarine/ white peach present a more intense face of chardonnay without losing any ground to its ’18 sibling on the score of elegance.

    RALPH KYTE-POWELL


    An object lesson in harmoniously constructed chardonnay. Peachy fruit has a mealy overtone with nutty oak in the background. The palate is plump and smooth, with seamless flow and a gentle, dry finish. Lovely drinking.

    JAMES SUCKLING


    This shows the prowess and power of the region. Citrus meets peach and grapefruit aromas with savory mealy oak in behind. The palate has an energetic core of tangy, bold peach flavor. The acidity holds long. Drink or hold.

    TONI PATERSON MW - THE REAL REVIEW


    A complex chardonnay with meringue and nougat aromatics. The palate has lovely weight and texture with sweet white nectarine flavours. I enjoy the palate softness and the length.
