2013 saw a change in the winemaking for the Chardonnay with a new approach to handling the juice. All of the hand picked fruit was pressed on a Champagne cycle in a small press and run straight to barrel, only 20% of them new. This in effect meant we had high quality, low phenolic juice, with some solids in the fermentation and each barrel was it’s own unique wine. All fermentation was allowed to start naturally and when about halfway through was inoculated with a cultured yeast to ensure a smooth finish. Post fermentation the barrels were stirred regularly to build mid palate texture and weight. After 8 months on lees the wine was blended and finished for bottling.

Winery Tasting Notes


An elegant Chardonnay which presents soft white stone fruit characters of white peach and nectarine over a ripe citrus core.


A touch of smokey, savoury oak combined a line of pure mineral acidity gives incredible freshness and length to the finish.

This vintage in particular shows a capacity to age gracefully over time and will reward careful cellaring.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Plantagenet takes its name not only from its home, but also from its heritage. In 1968 in a stroke of serendipity English migrant Tony Smith, himself a descendent of the Plantagenet's, invested his small inheritance in a farm called Bouverie in Western Australia’s Plantagenet Shire.

He first planted Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon followed by Riesling three years later.

The first wines from these young vines were tight and lean and showed the elegant spice and fruit characters for which this area was to become known.
