2017 Clairault "Estate" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia

SKU #1521209 95 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed. Barrel ferment in 40% new French barriques, aged in oak for 9 months with batonnage. This brims with aromas of grapefruit and white stone fruit enhanced by nutty oak complexity, the palate replete with long and lively citrus-tinged flavours and creaminess of texture. It all feels completely natural and unforced. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Some toasty and flinty complexity here with a grilled-peach and lemon nose, leading to a palate that has a wealth of savory, peach-kernel and spiced-almond flavors. Inner quote mark (4/2020)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Notes of pencil shavings and pineapple mark the nose of the 2017 Estate Chardonnay, sourced from the southern subregion of Karridale. Toasty and slightly nutty accents then emerge, joining bright grapefruit and lime flavors on the medium-bodied palate and lingering on the finish. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is still very much in its youth. Currently the butterscotch and vanilla notes jut out a little on the nose, but there's plenty of ripe fruit in the form of melon and pineapple to back it up, as well as a herbal, white pepper character. The oak gets a little chunky again on the palate, particularly on the finish, but with citrusy, mouthpuckering acidity balanced by fruit weight, this shows promise for a bright future. Inner quote mark (2/2019)
