Overview

All fruit was taken in the dark of night with the juice racked, cold settled and then fermented to enhance complexity and fruit flavours. Half of the total blend was detained in barrel for fermention using 20 per cent new French oak, with the balance in second and third fill oak. Weekly stirring was undertaken for a seven month sentence before this elegant and flavoursome Chardonnay was deemed ready for release.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale mid-straw.

Aroma

Beautiful fresh fruit aromas of rockmelon and sliced honeydew melon feature on this fruit driven nose. Complexity is added by the fresh vanilla yogurt and creamy notes arising from the sparing use of oak.

Palate

Melon characters of honeydew and rockmelon mix with intense flavours of white peach and citrus. Oak treatment has given this wine refinement and weight, while the natural acidity provides length and structure to this flavoursome drop.

Food Matching

Prawns with semi roasted tomatoes, celery, dill and yoghurt dressing; Spaghetti marinara

Cellaring Potential

Enjoy this wine in its youth or keep under lock and key for up to four years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

She tears down the darkened street, hair wild in the wind, dress blustering with the movement. Her heart pounds as running feet close in. At a corner, she halts, before silently slipping into a crowded bar.

Hours later, a detective stops to pick up a single red shoe, the only evidence that they were close to catching the mysterious flame-haired woman. Countless questions remain unanswered. Who is this woman? Why is she running? Is she the thief or is she running from the thief? But the most pressing of all is when will she next appear?

Launched in 2007 and hailed as the most successful wine brand launched that year in Australia, Catching Thieves captures the character and style of Margaret River to deliver wines that appeal to the contemporary lifestyle of consumers.

With engaging bottle designs that bring to life the daring escape scenes of our central protagonist, the Catching Thieves range includes the approachable varietals of Chardonnay, Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Merlot and Dolce.

Catching Thieves - wines with so much style, you'll do anything to get your hands on them.
