Region: Quindalup - Margaret River, WA
Variety: Chardonnay, Aligote
Words from Ben, winemaker at Blind Corner
It is made from a single block of wild-fermented Chardonnay, which is slowly being overtaken by Aligoté grafts, all wild fermented in barrel and rough filtered to bottle, keeping the wine as close to the vineyard as possible. Easily the best (ahem, only) Chardonnay Aligoté from Margaret River in the last 100 years.
Like your favourite comedian, this wine has a wonderfully dry delivery and flavourful punchline that will send your tastebuds into the giggles. It’s Chardonnay base offers a full-body mouthfeel, with the Aligoté adding citrus notes for a subtle tang.
