Well we had our very first weekend open at our pop up cellar door, and I must say, it went really well! Our staff met some fantastic customers, built some great rapport, and were very happy through it all (grinning from ear to ear!).
Our team had our usual Friday evening drinks, but this time at the pop up cellar door, with that beautiful mild spring breeze blowing through as we set out on the verandah and relished in our successful opening. The Home Grain Bakery were even nice enough to put on some cocktail bakery goods and desserts for us, which we sure didn't pass up!
If you haven't already, make sure you come and visit our new pop up cellar door and have a taste of our wines. We are open Friday's 12-4pm, Saturday's 10am-4pm, Sunday's 10am-4pm, and select public holidays. For any cellar door enquiries, please contact (08) 8383 2055 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

I had a dream. This dream entailed re-creating my sweet memory of an 80s Chablis with clean, dry, tightly wound and mineral proportions. It’s taken me a while not only to produce a Chardonnay of this ilk, (going against market trends I’ll have you know), but also to refine the style to a modern expression of the “cold chalk soup” I experienced many moons ago.
Fast forward to 2014, and this wine is certainly more modern in its sensibility, with gentle oak influences supplying buttery overtones and exotic fruity expressions of white fruits (peaches and banana) balanced by refreshing and tightly wound mineral acidity. Its flinty, steely edge and chalky mouthfeel do nothing to affect the purity of its fruit in flavour or aroma.
For me, the texture of the wine is the crucial component of a successful Chardonnay – there’s no point trying to break the mould when the original works so well.
