Nigel tells me Margaret River Chardonnay is selling like hotcakes in Australia right now - this wine is already sold out at his cellar door.

Which is great news for you, because you’re getting to taste a beautiful Chardonnay with a bit of age from one of the world’s premier wine regions.

Nigel started out on his own back in 2007 with two barrels of Chardonnay in his garage - and his simple recipe hasn’t really changed since.

He picks premium fruit off a rocky vineyard in the famed Wilyabrup area, and lets the juice ferment naturally. The wine then stays in barrel for 12 months.

You land up with a ripe, rich and refined Chardonnay, full of classic stone fruits, great texture and a lovely nutty finish.

If you’re a Chardonnay nut (like me), or you like your Burgundy whites, this is the wine for you.

Fabulous concentration of fruit with creamy oatmeal layers from deft use of oak.

Margaret River at its best.

Burgundy quality wine

Sipped this one after Christmas, balanced, structured and up there with a good Chablis, clever use of oak.

This is a lovely modern style Chardonnay from Western Australia - we had it with a prawn and smoked salmon starter on Christmas Day and everyone loved it..
