Overview

The Porongurup sub-region of the Great Southern has long been the home of delicate, fine and mineral chardonnay, often overlooked in the search for fantastic Riesling. Over the years of making Chardonnay from the Porongurups we have been convinced that the quality and style expressed from these vineyards is unique and world class.

Winery Tasting Notes

The Hallelujah Chardonnay shows the evolution of this block with better inputs in the vineyard. Intense grapefruit, struck match and curry leaf notes reflect the site and the whole juice handling. The palate has a creamy texture with grilled nectarine, brioche and a savoury oyster shell minerality. Powerful and balanced; rich yet long and refined. A great Hallelujah.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Snake and Herring was founded in 2011 by two wine industry junkies, Redmond “Herring” Sweeny and Tony “Snake” Davis. Compelled to walk away from their professional roles at the same time, Redmond and Tony decided to embark on a journey to create their own wine label. Over a parcel of epic Porongurup Riesling, an idea began to form. Many late-night texts were exchanged and early morning vineyard rendezvous arranged and before long Snake + Herring was created and a Porongurup Riesling born.

Like a good wine, Redmond and Tony are a well-balanced team. Tony tends to be dreamy, geeky, moved by the magnificence of science in wine. Capturing and bottling the best of fruit from each site and vintage really ignites him. Redmond has an agricultural and accounting background as well as a forklift driver's ticket and he's not afraid to use it. He knows the market, he knows how to sell wine and thankfully he has a cracking palate.

This partnership has seen Snake + Herring achieve great success, with their latest triumph being the opening of Yarri Restaurant + Bar Dunsborough with Sal Davis and awarded chef Aaron Carr at the helm.

The journey continues!
