2021 Domaine Naturaliste ‘Floris’ Chardonnay
Margaret River, WA
This sustainably farmed vineyard is in the cool southern end of Margaret River. Floris exhibits delicate textures and floral notes reminiscent of white jasmine flowers.
“This has the same back label fruit description of white grapefruit and nectarine as it’s Artus Chardonnay sibling, but that is where the similarity ends. This is all about purity and finesse, the fruit flavours strung on a necklace of diamonds, oak incidental.” – 96pts James Halliday
“…saline sea spray over notes of grapefruit zest, just-picked nectarine and lightly toasted hazelnut oak. The palate is alive with energy and the gorgeous purity of its savoury fruit versus balanced acidity with the lightest tannin grip; a tightrope of taut minerality and savoury oak framing the underlining zing. Drink now to 2030.” – 95pts Melissa Moore, Wine Pilot
