Vineyard Notes
A tricky season commencing with good early season growth. A cool and wet November impacted fruit set and resulted in reduced yields. Early summer was hot and dry, then February brought more cool and wet conditions. Our organic farming, however, had the vineyard in terrific shape to deal with the challenges and our Chardonnay was harvested with fruit purity and bright acidity.
Production Notes
2020: Our first organically certified MJW Chardonnay, and an outstanding vintage to boot! The warm growing season was graced by milder ripening conditions resulting in a wine that walks a tightrope between savoury complexity and fruit power. A blend of Margaret River classic Gingin clone offering a pristine citrus core, Dijon 95 clone for minerality and texture, and a hint of Dijon 76 clone. Drinks far too well now, especially given its 20-year cellaring potential. WA Wine Review's Ray Jordan gave this wine 99 points! drink now - 2040 2019: Truly reflective of the 2019 season's cooler conditions; steady ripening, slow sugar accumulation, complex flavour development and excellent natural acidity retention, the wine possesses elegance, balance and harmony. Crafted from 56% Gingin clone providing concentrated citrus fruit character and 44% Dijon clone 95, from our unique Broadvale Block 6 vineyard, conveying floral notes, minerality and texture. A Chardonnay that will develop further complexity as it ages. Drink now - 2034 2018: Tightly wound, with layers of vibrant sweet citrus fruits, dried pear & subtle hints of hazelnut and spice. Great line and length, with a silky texture and attractive dry savoury note. The perfect ripening conditions experienced in 2018 produced a truly classic expression of Margaret River Chardonnay which not only drinks well now, in its youth, but has all the power and structure to live on for many years. Drink now - 2033 2017: One of the coolest and latest seasons we've seen with the milder ripening conditions producing an outstanding expression of our MJW Chardonnay.
