Chardonnay | 2015

In recent years the chardonnays from Victory Point have moved into a new zone of excellence. This is another super example. Strikes a superb balance, with intense savoury notes and a touch of minerality adding to the precision on the palate. Arguably their best chardonnay yet.
Best drinking: Now to 2029.

Chardonnay | 2015

“Notes of rose petal, gingerbread, almonds and marzipan, with a creamy and textured mouthfeel, lead to lively pineapple fruit on the finish”

“Another impressive chardonnay. Starts with good fruit from an excellent vintage but then the winemaking takes over and it has been well managed. Whole-bunch pressing, all barrel fermented and some wild yeast with a little lees stirring. There is a mix of clones here as well as the traditional Mendoza. Has a flinty finish with deep butterscotch and mealy fruit in the middle palate. A trace of blue cheese complexity. Love it. Drink to 2028.”

“An exciting chardonnay that portrays the synergy between the clones and the place, purity and elegance in a symbiotic union that opens new doors every time you come back to it. Drink to 2030.”

Chardonnay | 2013

“Estate-grown, hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, settled in tank before racked to French barriques (36% new) for fermentation and 10 months maturation with regular lees stirring early in the piece, 10% mlf. A distinguished mix of the Dijon clones (59%) and Mendoza (41%). This is a very good chardonnay, even by Margaret River standards, tightly wound and focused, the fruit/oak balance perfect, likewise that of the citrus and stone fruits”

Chardonnay | 2012

“In the centre of Margaret River Chardonnay style, celebrating depth and complexity courtesy of grapefruit juice and zest, fig, stone fruit and melon. Drink to 2022”

Chardonnay | 2011

“This Margaret River Chardonnay has endured the long hot summer of the 2011 vintage better than many of its competitors. Ripe and concentrated fruit is integrated with balanced oak, fine lees complexity and bright citrus acidity.    2013-2019”

Chardonnay | 2011

“Estate-grown (60% Mendoza and 40% Dijon clones), whole bunch-pressed, wild yeast barrel-fermented in French oak (40% new), 2 months stirring, plus 8 months maturation, no mlf. Bright green-gold, this is a very complex, rich chardonnay with white peach and nectarine neatly balanced by citrusy acidity.”

Chardonnay | 2010

Made from the four Dijon Burgundy clones plus the Mendoza clone; the quality of the grapes shines through like a beacon, the multiple fruit (and oak) flavours welded seamlessly into a coherent whole, the palate long and beautifully balanced, the flavours still fresh and succulent.

Chardonnay | 2010

“Rich brioche, walnuts, lime oil, peachy undertones. Still full of the lean citrus acid of youth with a growing nutty, oat-mealy depth promising fabulous longevity.”

Chardonnay | 2009

This is a true blockbuster with ripe stone fruit and toffee-vanilla oak on the nose, a balanced, elegant – though luscious – texture, crisp acidity and a long finish.

Chardonnay | 2009

This is a cracking good Chardonnay from this small Margaret River producer. The nose has a dry flinty character with traces of minerals and grapefruit. A little touch of creamy cashew and roasted almonds poke in there too. The palate has a dry almost savoury character with an excellent balance of fruit and oak. Classy wine.

Chardonnay | 2009

Gleaming, bright green-straw; made using Burgundian clones 76, 95, 96 and 277,plus the Mendoza clone, a distinguished assemblage that has duly produced a distinguished, finely drawn and structured wine of great length and intensity; will be long lived.

Chardonnay | 2008

Gleaming straw-green; the dry-grown vineyard is planted to the best of the best Dijon clones: 76, 95, 96 and 277, plus the ‘hen and chicken’ Mendoza clone; the wine is even more intense and complex than it was when first tasted in Mar ’09; amazing length. Grand Cru white burgundy stuff.

Chardonnay | 2007

“The combination of the Burgundian clones and the Mendoza clone is a potent one; highly aromatic and pure chardonnay has absorbed the French oak, and the wine has a prodigiously long palate….96/100 Drink to 2020”

Chardonnay | 2006

“A complex bouquet showing barrel ferment and intense, albeit ripe fruit: fruit drives the palate with ripe peach, nectarine and melon.… 94/100  Drink 2012”

Chardonnay | 2005
