'Wow, this takes off like an Exocet missile with the acidity of the vintage part-reduced.'
95 Points - James Halliday

  • Deep Woods would have to rank as one of Australia's great Chardonnay producers, and with this incredible sub-$20 Chard, produced by the James Halliday Winemaker of the Year Julian Langworthy, they have hit the nail absolutely on the end. It's a little bit rich, a little bit funky, a little bit golden, and a whole lot delicious. Exceptional value Chardonnay that would put many top tier wines to shame.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The fruit for this wine came from select vineyards across the region, a large component of which was hand-picked. The fruit was whole-bunch pressed directly to two- and three-year-old French oak barrels with each of the parcels kept separate before blending. The wine was allowed to ferment “wild” using indigenous yeasts and subsequently matured on lees for 6–8 months depending on the parcel. Little or no malolactic fermentation occurred. This Chardonnay is fresh, fulfilling, uncompromising and made true to the Deep Woods Estate ‘house style’.

    TASTING NOTES

    Pale straw with green tinges. The wine exhibits lifted nectarine and white blossom characters underpinned with complex notes of flint and gun smoke. The palate is alive with vibrant natural acidity which is expansive and powerful. It is nuanced with tremendous depth of ripe stone-fruit flavour. A hint of oak-driven character further increases structure and length.

  • REVIEWS

    'Pale straw-green. Wow, this takes off like an Exocet missile with the acidity of the vintage part-reduced by mlf; white flowers on the bouquet seem to reappear, tantalising on the aftertaste. The main game is played out between white-fleshed stone fruit and grapefruit. To 2025.'
