Best Chardonnay From Margaret River

Pure, powerful and unparalleled Chardonnay that says ‘kiss my arse’…

Introducing the first ever vintage of Suckfizzle Chardonnay. A smallbatch wine made from just three rows of Gin Gin clone Chardonnay planted in 1998 from the most southern and unique vineyard in the Margaret River region.

Judged the Best Chardonnay from Margaret River in the 7th annual Langton's James Halliday Chardonnay Challenge. The 2018 competition involved 544 entries judged blind in regional categories. From this record amount of entries, 28 Gold Medals were awarded.

The Making…
 
With a load of character and flavour, this incredible fruit was hand-picked, whole bunch pressed with solids and wild fermented into French oak barriques for 10 months with minimal battonage. Unfined and unfiltered to show the raw power of this vineyard.
 
The Wine…
 
The prevailing winds which come directly from Antartica and the moderation of the site by the Hardy Inlet create distinction and character in this wine. Salty, sea-sprayed fruit contributes to a unique and complex oyster shell character. White nectarine, grapefruit pith, lime rind and smoky oak round out the generous nose. Incredible power of fruit. Textured and mouthwatering, there is obvious chemistry between the fruit and the oak. Flavours of crushed lime, lemon and sea salt. Lively mineral acidity and layered texture.
