Region: Margaret River - Victoria
Winemaker: Josephine Perry
Varietal(s): 100% Chenin Blanc
ACertified organic Chenin Blanc from Willyabrup. Hand harvested, whole bunch pressed direct to season french barrels. Battonage for three months then racked to settle before bottling.
Jo Perry, the winemaker and her viticulturist partner Jim have got their priorities right, focusing first and foremost on sourcing high quality fruit, before worrying about what to do with it in the winery.
The fruit is handpicked and whole bunch pressed straight into barrel for wild ferment, where it sits on its lees before being bottled with no fining or filtration.
It's a lovely, unique expression of this loveable variety, and if you like your whites with a bit of texture and oomph, then this will be right up your alley.
