Artus is an artistic translation of our local Gin Gin clone into wine. It is a provocative, complex and textural wine exuding the seductive spirit of “old world” chardonnay.

The vines have been managed to allow only dappled light into the fruiting zone. This promotes flavor development, low tannins and bright levels of natural acidity. The fruit is farmed in the cool southern end of Margaret River. The tiny 100g Gin Gin clusters are hand harvested at first light to preserve freshness of fruit.

Flavours of fresh nectarines and candied pecan nuts are supported by aromas of poached pears and marzipan.

MATURATION
40% new 228 L medium toast French oak barriques for 10 months. The wood is primarily from the Voges and Allier forests.

Our notes

Wonderful classic Chardonnay nose that really draws you in showing brioche, warm toast, a little sizzling melted butter and grilled almonds with notes of fresh pear and stone fruits. The palate echoes the nose with similar attractive Chardonnay flavours, at once flavoursome and detailed with brisling lemony acidity adding energy, structure and finesse. Gorgeous Chardonnay! CR

The smooth operator in the Naturaliste Chardonnay range, and Naturaliste always puts me in mind of naturists, which is not something I want to dwell on overmuch, unlike this wine. A little struck match, pear and almond, some cinnamon spice, ripe lime, almost. It’s silky and smooth, a cashew-like richness, some toast too, but pure in fruit flavour, delicious ripe grapefruit tingle and cut to its acidity, a slight flintiness to texture, and a surge of flavour, lime rind and floral things on a very long finish. Sophisticated and seductive. Beautiful.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
