Expert Reviews

Light straw-green; a delicate wine with grapefruit and white peach to the fore, oak little more than a ghost in the background; despite this delicacy, does have surprising length and persistence, and will build over the next few years. Rating 93 - Drink by 2016 James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JUL/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Light straw coloured

Aroma

A harmonious balance between white peach and nectarine fruits with complex mealy notes. Adding to the complexity are subtle hints of grilled cashews and elegant, well integrated French oak.

Palate

There is front palate richness from the nectarine and white peach fruit characters, which is followed seamlessly by the textured mid palate. Complex mealy notes and the subtle new oak add to the layers and the power of the wine. The natural acidity provides freshness to the mid palate. A grapefruit pith finish, so typical of Great Southern Chardonnay, gives the wine length and persistence.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

3drops began with a family farm and a vision- a vision to produce premium wines and extra virgin olive oil whilst maintaining the integrity of the land for generations to come. Southwest of Mount Barker in the heart of the acclaimed Great Southern wine region of Western Australia, vines and olive trees flourish side by side in the cool, pristine climate.

The 3drops vineyard comprises 15 fertile hectares planted with varieties of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz. Italian, Greek and Spanish varieties of olive trees thrive alongside the vines. The name 3drops was chosen to reflect the attributes of three precious liquids wine, olive oil and water, with both the vineyard and olive grove carefully irrigated from a large wetland on the property.

The melding of time honoured tradition, passion and sensibility with contemporary techniques and the latest technology, enables 3drops to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characters.
