We have an absolutely stunning Chenin Blanc on offer this week from fresh young Western Australia producer, Express Winemakers. 

This cool climate, Great Southern Chenin is complex yet vibrant, with notes of yellow apple, starfruit, chamomile, a little spiced honey and nuttiness, backed up by wonderful texture and acidity and a long finish. So elegant and engaging.

Winemaker Ryan O’Meara (2021 Young Gun of Wine Finalist) follows a minimal intervention approach to his wines to really showcase the quality of the vineyards and the fruit. His wines are organic (though not certified), and the Chenin is hand picked and whole bunch crushed then fermented in old barrels, unfined and unfiltered. 

A perfect winter white (though we’d drink it any time of year, really), a current staff favourite, and amazing value for a Chenin Blanc of this quality at this price.

Producers notes

Express Winemakers are about producing wines that are uniquely expressive of their origins. We currently lease and manage four small vineyards in the Mount Barker and Porongurup sub-regions of Western Australia’s Great Southern. We feel that the cool climate and ancient decomposed granite soils of the Great Southern lends itself to low yielding vines producing high quality fruit, which is necessary to make expressive minimal intervention wines.

We farm our vineyards using organic practices eschewing the use of synthetic chemicals. We don’t irrigate our vineyards forcing the vines to send roots deep into the sub-soil. Our fruit is all hand harvested and crushed by foot, commonly employing whole bunches including the stalks. Both primary and malo-lactic fermentation occur spontaneously with native yeast and bacteria. Movement of the wine is kept to a minimum and no fining or filtration is used. We believe that these practices as well as being better for the environment, help create delicious wines that express a sense of place.
