2016 Si Vintners Halcyon Vineyard Chardonnay

Margaret River, Western Australia

Si Vintners' Halcyon Vineyard was first planted in 1978 hence these vines are extremely old and untreated in predominantly clay subsoil. The site produces rich and delicate fruit. Unfortunately there is very little fruit (<1000 bottles), but those that are grown are known to be strong and exceptional in taste. Cuttings from this vineyard were used to plant Cullen winery vines. This 2016 Chardonnay has lovely acidity, richness, mango, cream and candied fruit effect with a small amount of new oak used. The Chardonnay was basket pressed directly to barrel where the wine spent roughly 18 months. It was blended into stainless steel where it remained for a further 6 months to allow it to come together.

About the maker

Si Vintners, with the S and I for Sarah Morris and Iwo Jakimowicz, have always taken a natural approach to life so the organic management of their vineyards has become an extension of that.

Surviving a weevil outbreak in 2013 with only the use of organic treatments and now with hardier vineyards, re-affirms their own mindset in this style of farming and winemaking. Iwo and Sarah emphasise the fact that nothing is removed and nothing is added, aside from a small amount of sulphur at bottling. Notwasted have tried many of vintages and they are always blown away by their unique characteristics and deliciousness.
