2018 Blind Corner Chardonnay Aligote
|Region||Margaret River, WA|
|Status||Certified Organic and Biodynamic with Australian Certified Organic (ACO)|
Inspired by a European ‘vineyard and surf’ van trip, Ben and Naomi Gould set about converting their ‘Wilyabrup’ vineyard to organics and biodynamics. They haven’t looked back, and now have a second vineyard ‘Quindalup’, both vineyards including winery and in-house bottling are certified organic. Biodynamic veggie gardens, beehives and free range chooks scratching around the vines all coexist to create a natural way of farming and delicious tasting wine.
|Wine||Aligote originates from Burgundy, France and makes a dry white wine with high acidity and citrus flavours. In this blend the Chardonnay gives a full-body mouthfeel, with the Aligoté adding citrus notes for a subtle tang. It is made from a single block of wild-fermented Chardonnay, which is slowly being overtaken by Aligoté from our Quindalup vineyard, all wild fermented in barrel and rough filtered to bottle, keeping the wine as close to the vineyard as possible. Delicious.|
|Tasting Note||Peach - Tangy - Full-bodied|
