Deep Woods Reserve Chardonnay is considered one of Margaret River’s flagship Chardonnays and most sought-after wines.
Pale straw in colour with brilliant green tinges. The nose is hugely complex and immediately alluring showing flinty reduction, freshly baked brioche and chipped shell characters. The wine opens up to show a complex array of kaffir lime, white stone fruits and lifted pure floral notes. The palate shows restrained power and great balance. Suggestive of juicy ripe citrus and grilled almonds, its amazing natural acid drive carries the wine long and provides a crystalline clarity to the fruit. Fine structure and a nervous energy define this exceptional wine.
