Details

"This wine is now firmly among the Margaret River chardonnay elite. It's sourced from a single site in the Wallcliffe subregion. All wild fermented and matured in large-format French oak, with about 40 per cent of it new. Wonderfully complex stone fruit, mineral and tight savoury notes. Very long and powerfully sustained palate. Classy wine. Best drinking: Now to 2030."


Ray Jordan, The West Australian, Nov '18


"Lobster and chardonnay are culinary soulmates - the intense grapefruit, peach and melon flavours of the chardonnay with its (oak derived) structural tannins act as a counterpoint to the sweet, seafresh meaty flavours of the crustacean. That some of the best lobster comes from Augusta, just to the south of Margaret River adds a special note to this synergistic combination. Cliff Royle knows the Margaret River region backwards with chardonnay his forte - his 2017 Wallcliffe a testament to his skill. This recipe takes the inherent power of the lobster meat and boosts it with the brash, tomato-based patatas bravas. Power meets power."


Peter Bourne, Gourmet Traveller Wine, Dec '18/Jan '19
