2022 Joseph River Estate Reserve Chardonnay

Product Info

Our multi award-winning Joseph River Reserve Chardonnay in 2022 was harvested from a single vineyard in Margaret River, fermented and matured in a selection of French oak barrels.

"2022 was a warm year that enabled the Chardonnay to fully ripen and develop great richness. After hand harvest the fruit was cooled before it was whole bunch pressed, then wild fermented, lees stirred and matured in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barrels". Stuart Pierce, Chief Winemaker

Medium straw with pale lime green rim. Intense butter toast, roasted almonds and white fruits on the nose. The palate offers a dry, soft natural acidity and nuttiness.

AWARDS & REVIEWS:

95 Points - Halliday Wine Companion

“At first it seems overwhelmingly good – as in lots of flavour from stone fruit and pink grapefruit to cedary sweet oak and more. Yet the palate seems quite contained and detailed with fine acidity reining everything in. It’s lively and refreshing, moreish and savoury.”

93 Points - The Wine Pilot 

"This is a classy chardonnay sourced from Margaret River in what was a warm year. The natural fruit richness has been complemented with wide fermentation, regular lees stirring and time in a mix of oaks. Nutty, ripe nectarine aromas engage immediately. The palate displays a trace of struck match complexity with a slightly savoury element. It’s impressive and worth considering for cellaring."  Cellar 6 Years.
