Streicker Ironstone Block Chardonnay
Clairault Streicker is a simply outstanding Margaret River producer – if you haven’t heard of them, yes you have been missing out! With four well established vineyard sites that span the region and superstar WA winemaker Bruce Dukes at the helm, they have the perfect formula to create magnificent, expressive wines. Their Yallingup vineyard is also home to a stunning protea farm, the inspiration for the featuring of a different species of protea on each of their Streicker labels.
This a bold and powerful Chardonnay from legendary Margaret River winemaker Bruce Dukes. Think ripe peach/nectarine, juicy citrus, warm, spicy apple pie and a good lick of toasty vanilla French oak. It’s a great big hug in a glass – complex and opulent, yet with a crisp acidity to keep it all in check. Superb value!

“This is sumptuous chardonnay, standing out across a range of very fine reds. From the heart of Wilyabrup, this was barrel-fermented across an arsenal of new (33%) to partly used wood, stirred periodically and aged for 9 months. A portion underwent malolactic conversion. Peaches and cream. A luxuriant core of creamed cashew and praline, with vanilla pod oak sewing the seams. An alluvial pulse with a maritime thrum, carrying it long. Very.” Ned Goodwin
