What we can let slip about this Mystery Chardonnay is that it comes from a well-known winery with a big Margaret River presence. In fact, the famous winemaker in charge of this Chardy has a long history of making some of West Australia's most famous wines...
He (there's a clue, the winemaker is male) has delivered a superb, super-premium Chardonnay here, crafted this using fruit from southern Margaret River that was handpicked, hand-sorted and whole-bunch-pressed directly to barrel. Wild fermented and matured in 100% new fine French oak, this megastar Chardonnay has the power and depth that you expect to find in $50 Margaret River Chardonnay - and the scores to match.
With 95 points from Ray Jordan, 94 points from James Halliday and a spot in Matthew Juke's top 100 Wines of 2016 this is unquestionably fine Chardonnay that combines understated power with exceptional length.
Complex and restrained. Roasted nuts and nougat. Underlying citrus blossom. Ample texture. Long fine acidity.
