Our Chardonnay vines are reaping the rewards, winning GOLD for our 2016 Whimwood Chardonnay at the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. We left the city and found a property near the town of Nannup on the ancient and remote Blackwood River, Western Australia, which came with a bonus vineyard and decided to give it a go. The vines were planted in 2004, but we reduced our Chardonnay to 2000 vines in pursuit of meager yields, tiny volumes and better, more concentrated flavours; it was a good move both for us and the wine; with our Chardonnay consistently racking up a string of show successes.
