A rich, creamy, mouthfilling Chardonnay.

Were Estate is located in the prestigious Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, sharing such esteemed neighbours as Moss Wood, Cullen and Vasse Felix. A relative new comer, the estate was established by the Davies Family, with vines planted in 1998. The family wasted no time however, engaging talent and regional expertise, with Ian Bell (of Moss Wood fame) making the reds until the 2009 vintage, when former Vasse Felix winemaker Clive Otto took the helm of the winemaking team. Clive is a former Winestate Magazine Australian Winemaker of the Year, with over twenty years experience working top quality, Wilyabrup fruit into some of the country’s great wines. All these factors combine to present another surprise discovery from this premier wine region. This excellent, fuller styled Chardonnay was made by Clive Otto and barrel fermented in new French oak barriques for eight months. Bright straw colour with pale straw hue. The nose displays excellent intensity with lifted scents of white peach, nougat, cashew and spice. The palate is both mouthfilling and concentrated, delivering a flavour profile of ripe white peach, nougat and cashew followed by some light toast and a spicy back palate.
Creamy mouthfeel. Excellent length with long aftertaste of white peach, cashew, spice
and nougat.
