Expert Reviews

94 Points - James Halliday Wine Companion 2017 - Published 6 Oct 2016

The elegance of this wine has not been achieved at the expense of complexity; the fresh, grapefruit-accented varietal fruit has subtexts of cashew and a certain savoury spice, the bow tied by citrussy acidity; all up excellent length.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Light straw colour

Aroma

A great example of cool climate Chardonnay from the Great Southern. Ripe fruit notes of nectarine and peach, along with pink grapefruit characters are complimented by complex mealy aromas and subtle French oak that are fresh and balanced.

Palate

A full flavoured wine that is rich and complex yet also fresh and lively on the palate. Nectarine fruits fill the front palate and are backed immediately by the silky and rich texture of the wine. The quality French oak sits quietly in the back-ground adding to the flavour and complexity both of which carry the length of the wine. Long and powerful, the wine has great length and the flavours linger in the mouth. Enjoy with a wide range of meals, including pasta and white meat dishes, over the next five years.

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.
