2018 Dilworth and Allain Cope Williams Chardonnay
“Our philosophy has been to make wines that we would love to drink. That have a sense of place and are able to tell a story. We seek to make wine that is refreshing and interesting, allowing time for maturation and evolution in the cellar. We believe in producing wines that are un-fined, unfiltered, using natural yeasts and with sulphur being the only additive along the way.”
Dilworth and Allain are doing amazing things and we’re so keen to see where the guys take this. The Cope Williams Chardonnay is on the super lean end of the spectrum as one would expect from a vineyard that historically was only warm enough to ripen fruit for sparkling wine. Think Chablis but from the Macedon Ranges.
That means sea spray, green apples, lemon, only a touch of anything nutty. Looks best after being open for three days, so consider a decant.
