Byron & Harold The Partners Chardonnay 2023


Fascinating to see this Great Southern Chardonnay alongside its sibling from Margaret River. Yes, it is not a competition, but… Normally, we’d expect the Marg River wine to reign supreme, however on this occasion, both drank beautifully. Hard to split them. This is a really impressive Great Southern Chardy, very light straw colour, the nose offers pungent notes of stonefruit, apricot, fig, mandarin and minerals. There is a chalky backing to the wine, while hints of lime and grapefruit flicker on the palate. A supple texture, with bright acidity, the wine has very good length and should drink very well for the next six to ten years.
