97 Points - James Halliday "Five gold medals in the second half of '17 will have been added to by the time of publication. Mainly sourced from Wilyabrup, the wine has a special type of phenolic grip (not limited to white wines) that makes the taster incapable of doing anything other than swallow it (bad phenolics have the opposite effect). A special wine, with perfect fruit/oak balance."

Taste & Aroma

Score:97

Continues the evolution of Deep Woods to premier Chardonnay producer in Margaret River. This is high-class stuff that gets the whole kid gloves treatment from winemaker Julian Langworthy. Whole bunch pressing after hand-picking, a mix of new and used French oak and lees stirring. It all creates texture and layered complexity. Such an elegant and persuasive chardonnay that captures the new expression of the region. Cellar: 7 years.

Zalto Denk-Art Bordeaux Glass

Zalto Bordeaux glass is recommended for weightier style reds, probably our most widely used glass when tasting in house, this glass is great for many different wines. The large bowl helping aerate and soften tannins whilst accentuating the wines depth and concentration. The Bordeaux glass is the ideal choice for Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Zinfandel, Bordeaux or Rhone style blends and many other red wines. Surprisingly, it is also the glass of choice for oaked Chardonnay as well, the shape of the bowl accentuating the balance of ripe fruits and oak.

"They are now lead by one of Australia’s most talented winemakers and James Halliday’s winemaker of the year 2019, Julian Langworthy who joined the team in 2011 and since then, They have accumulated a seemingly endless list of accolades and awards."

 

Perched on a ridge, surrounded by stunning scenery and woodlands of indigenous Jarrah and Marris trees, Deep Woods Estate began life in 1987 but their reputation as one of Margaret Rivers leading wineries began to grow after they were acquired by the Fogarty family in 2005.

They are now lead by one of Australia’s most talented winemakers and James Halliday’s winemaker of the year 2019, Julian Langworthy who joined the team in 2011 and since then, They have accumulated a seemingly endless list of accolades and awards. These includes a staggering 99 points awarded by James Halliday and a fistful of Gold Medals for their Reserve Cabernet 2016 and 98 points accompanied by even more Gold Medals for their Reserve Chardonnay 2017. Deep Woods are now considered to be one of the most exciting and respected wineries in Margaret River who cannot seem to put a foot wrong, winning equal acclaim from critics and us alike.

Deep Woods Estate wines definitely stand out from the crowd, although we had 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.

"The list of awards given to this tiny area in Australia’s most isolated region is endless and it’s no wonder that Margaret River is dominating Australia’s premium sector.."

 

Perched all the way over on Australia’s most south westerly tip is Margaret River. A region that accounts for less than 5% of Australia’s wine production but is responsible for 20% of the premium wines and the lion’s share of awards. Probably best known as the region that produces some of the new world’s finest Cabernet, Margaret River specialises not only in red and white, Bordeaux style wines but the region is also gaining a reputation for premium Chardonnays that rival some of the best found in Burgundy. Deep Woods have scooped up a multitude of awards across their range, including five gold medals and a staggering 98 points awarded for their Reserve Chardonnay 2017. Nocturne’s 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon picked up three trophies including Best Red Wine of Show. Watershed make no secret of their list of accolades, their labels crammed with gold medals and trophies and all but one of Flowstone’s wines have been awarded 95 points or above. The list of awards given to this tiny area in Australia’s most isolated region is endless and it’s no wonder that Margaret River is dominating Australia’s premium sector.
