92 points - James Halliday 

A number of batches picked, each whole bunch-pressed to used French oak barrels for wild fermentation and 6 months maturation on lees. Very much a la mode, reducing the impact of oak to the texture, not flavour, picking the grapes at the crucial moment to ensure maximum varietal expression (no wannabe sauvignon blanc), yet retain crisp acidity, and offering a Margaret River chardonnay at a mouthwatering price.

Producer

Deep Woods Estate wines definitely stand out from the crowd, although we have struggled to source their stunning wines as they are simply rarely available to the outside world – the majority of bottles are scooped up at the cellar door or sold through their domestic mailing list. But, we tried and tried until we received a small parcel, which we are delighted to share with you all. Deep Woods Estate is now firmly fixed in our portfolio of great Australian wines and we are so thrilled to be in a position to offer an annual allocation.

Region

The Margaret River - the go-to place for world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. A region of less than 5% of the country’s vines has arguably become the most admired with many of the ‘hottest’ winemakers choosing this beautiful region to show-off their talents. We are proud to exclusively offer you some of its brightest stars including Flowstone, Watershed and Nocturne to name a few.
