  • TASTING NOTE: Fine aromatics, reminiscent of floral, citrus and flint, build in intensity as the wine breathes in the glass, to show layers of funky wild ferment and lees-derived complexity. The palate has great depth of flavour, with clarity and poise, all the elements following a long line of mineral acidity. A tightly wound chardonnay of both power and finesse held together along a line of textural precision. A wine with great aging potential.
  • ABOUT THE WINE: The 2020 growing season in the Denmark sub-region of the Great Southern delivered warm, sunny weather early in the summer months, with below average rainfall. These conditions encouraged development of great fruit flavour early in the season, with the earliest harvest on record. The 2020 vintage was notable for lower yields, but exceptional fruit quality. ‘The Vivienne’ Chardonnay aims to capture the essence of our Singlefile chardonnay vineyard from multiple perspectives, comprising two separate passes of hand picking from different panels of the vineyard on 19th February (Be 11.7, pH 3.2) and 4th March (Be 12.6, pH 3.26). Each parcel of fruit was hand-picked and chilled overnight, before whole bunch pressing direct to new and seasoned French barriques, for fermentation on full solids by natural yeasts. The wine was allowed to mature on lees without sulphur for approximately 5 months with some spontaneous malolactic fermentation taking place. The wine was matured for a total of 10 months in oak before being racked to a stainless tank and bottled. Held for 30 months in bottle before release.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Based near Denmark, Singlefile is a family owned winery, co-founded by Phil and Viv Snowden and their daughter Pam and her husband Patrick Corbett. Singlefile aims to showcase the best of the five diverse sub-regions of the Great Southern in Western Australia. This prolific producer produces a broad range of wines from across the region but specialises in Chardonnay with the home vineyard producing some of Australia's best examples of the varietal. The estate is named for the geese that patrol the home vineyard, waddling around in singlefile.
