Faber Vineyard Dwellingup Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Ray Jordan (2011 Vintage) says
Beautiful expression of Geographe chardonnay from down at Dwellingup. Notes of butterscotch and brioche with a trace of roasted almond and meal. Love the palate feel and weight. The flavour is held with control by a crisp acid and neatly judged oak. This is a quality chardonnay ideal for the next few years.

On the nose you get the immediate impression of a fine tight young chardonnay. The palate carries it through. It has light creamy nuances with a thread of spicy minerals and light citrus. An enticing texture holds a controlled focused palate to a very long finish. Nice wine.

Vibrant green hue; a restrained and mineral-laden bouquet of grapefruit, pear and spicy oak; the palate is taut, fresh and focused, long and refreshing; unevolved and with a healthy life ahead.

This fruit is sourced from the cooler southern Dwellingup region. It's a thoroughly beautiful fine lean and elegant Chardonnay. Has been given the full treatment with whole bunch pressing, barrel fermentation and extended lees contact. Through this it has retained a fine delicacy in the modern idiom.

A finely crafted, elegant and, if anything, understated chardonnay that has absorbed barrel ferment and 10 months in oak with nonchalant ease; gentle stone fruit, melon and creamy nuances run the length of the palate

This is a new offering from Griffiths under his Faber label. The cool climate Dwellingup region shows great promise for chardonnay. This has been whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented with further lees ageing. Richly texture and quite lavish, it's a very tidy wine indeed.

A fine and fragrant bouquet; a beautifully restrained palate, with melon and nectarine fruit; whole-bunch pressed, barrel-fermented and 10 months on lees, but still towards Chablis in style.
