Domaine Naturaliste Floris Chardonnay - Margaret River

Vintage: 2016 Region: Western Australia
Type: Whites
Winery: Domaine Naturaliste
Tasting Notes:

Floris is a modern and engaging expression of our local clone into wine. This style is a coevolution of Modern Australian food and wine culture, which has great emphasis on balance, freshness and hedonistic pleasure. The sustainably farmed vineyard is in the cool southern end of Margaret River. Floris exhibits delicate textures and floral notes reminiscent of white jasmine flowers.

This is a cracker! Let’s face it Chardonnay is a bit like pinot in that it is difficult to find really good examples under $30. This beautiful Margaret River wine is a store favourite with our chardonnay drinking customers and will appeal to those looking for structure and quality at an affordable price. Domaine Naturaliste winemaker Bruce Dukes has a magic touch when it comes to this noble variety and we are amazed he can deliver a wine of such character at this level. In terms of style it sits somewhere in the middle between a full flavoured traditional chardonnay [honey/cashew/white peach] and a more racy vibrant modernist expression [grapefruit/lemon]. In short, it’s beautifully balanced delivering flavour as well as refinement! Highly recommended by the Wine Experience staff! 

"One-third fermented and matured in French barriques for 10 months. Aromas of white peach and lemon, with the distinctive Gin Gin clone feel in evidence as well as some creamy, spicy oak. Richly textured with sweet fruit flavours and juicy citrus-like acidity which picks up towards the end of the palate and makes for a lip-smacking finish."
- 94 Points James Halliday

"Straw-coloured. Aromatic, ripe, steely and spicy at once. It lives up to the idea of itself. Pear, nectarine, custard apples and custard powder, cream and white peach. Refreshing, sweet, dry and racy. Yes, all those things. Quite impeccable really. Both satisfying and refreshing." 93 Points Alcohol : 13% Drink : 2018 - 2024 - Campbell Mattinson WINEFRONT
