If you love Margaret River Chardonnay and Rosé with a twist then these two delicious wines will hit the mark.
95 GOLD – Emma Farrelly – THE WINE PILOT
‘‘An alluring wine with a ‘just pink’ blush. Delicate, taut and fine boned. High toned red fruits; pomegranate & watermelon, alongside perfumed florals and sweet ruby grapefruit. A long, fine, dry finish with a slippery feel. Just gorgeous.’’
95 GOLD – Erin Larkin – HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 2023
“If you missed last year’s Boya Chardonnay, this concept will be new to you. Boya means ‘stones’ in the local Wadandi language. Gingin fruit is fermented wild in barrel with full solids, along with smooth stones collected from the local coast. The barrels are then periodically rolled, agitating the stones within, stirring the lees and creating layers of textural complexity. It’s pretty astounding, and the resulting wine picks up the shale and mineral characters of the rocks (suggestive, yes). While the wine is (like the 2020) stingingly acidic, it is set against a backdrop of crushed quartz, white peach, brine, green apple skins and pulverised almonds, bringing the picture into focus and balance. It is very smart and very fine. The length of flavour the key.”
