/ Case of 12


Chardonnay is very well suited to the cool climate environment of the Great Southern wine region. Chardonnay from the vineyard sites in this part of Western Australia tend to ripen slowly, developing complex flavours while also retaining an elegant natural acidity which provides for a lovely balance between richness and vibrancy.

The 2023 season brought about a warm spring which resulted in a good start to the ripening season. Even temperature days and cool nights helped to retain the natural acidity in the fruit while full flavours developed.

The 2023 chardonnay fruit was harvested in three parcels on 16th, 22nd and 23rd March 2023. In each instance the fruit was chilled overnight and then fermented in approximately 28% new and 72% one year old Burgundian oak barriques. The chardonnay barrels were lees stirred weekly for four months and then left to settle in barrel for a further four months before being prepared for bottling.


This wine has bright aromas of lemon curd and peach with subtle mealy and struck match characters. The palate displays a modern styled chardonnay of citrus zest and stone fruit with the use of new oak providing a subtle spice character. The wine is bright and mouth filling with a long lingering finish. The delicacy and acid profile of this year’s chardonnay augur well for its cellaring potential.

I’m not a “woody” Chardonnay fan so usually steer clear of them all together - however, I was pleasantly surprised. This Chardonnay isn’t too woody/oaky and is dry but pleasant. I had it on a winters night snuggled by the fire with a nice mushroom risotto - a match made in winters heaven. This Chardonnay is still fruity but definitely one for those who like a quite dry white. Overall very pleasant

Crisp and light in flavour, citrus undertones. Really enjoyed drinking this wine and paired lovely with the fish we were eating.

A very lightly oaked Chardonnay that is crisp and dry with lots of flavours in the mix. A good accompaniment for white fish or chicken.

The nose and palate is consistent here; citrus notes reflect the balanced acidity, which brings good length on the finish. Oak influence is quite subtle but definitely there, and rounds out the mouthfeel just enough to prevent this from being too sharp. Overall a bright and cheerful wine, which should keep all but the most butter obsessed Chardonnay drinks happy, particularly at this price point.

This was a truly satisfying wine, I have lamented the veer to light, astringent chardonnay making whilst not liking the very oaky, heavy style of the past. This wine beautifully treads the middle ground yielding a fruit-filled wine in which oak is submerged and resulting in a light style with a creamy mouth feel.

This is a bloody good Chardonnay! I'd normally choose a GS Riesling... but I'm glad I gave this a go. Just the right amount of 'oakiness'.

My family and friends favourite Singlefile chardonnay. Reliable and very well priced year in, year out. The 2019 is a tad more astringent on the front palate (think apricot just before it’s fully ripe) but it has a smooth and flavoursome finish, thanks to the generous time spent in high quality French oak. Highly recommended. Singlefile make several very fine Chardonnays but this one is without doubt the best value.

The Chardonnay 2019 was divine with subtle Oak notes of vanilla and medium cream not overwhelming the fresh vibrant fruit underpinned by a great structure of Medium + Acidity, Medium Alcohol and Medium + flavour intensity . A perfect drop to drink now or keep for a few years . Wish I had bought another bottle .

This high quality wine is an excellent example of the amazing Chardonnay’s on offer from the Great Southern region — and one of my personal favourites. It’s bright, zesty, with a lingering aroma of summer fruits. Flavours of citrus and nectarine feature, along with a subtle hint of oak.

This wine is always a hit, even with my friends who don’t normally drink Chardonnay! It’s well balanced — not overly dry or too oaky like some varieties. A beautiful drop, perfect on a balmy summer evening.

Aromas of peach, lemon zest, a touch of oak and a lingering finish. This beautiful, bright Chardonnay tastes like the start of summer to me!

Tasted 1/12/23. Bright straw yellow colour. Aromas of peach and green apple. Full bodied with an intense, lingering finish. Well balanced oak and acidity with flavours of rockmelon and lemon. Would suit richer fish and poultry dishes. Better as it warms as the flavours pop out. Lacks the complexity of the Family Reserve Chardys hence the four star rating but still an excellent wine for the money.
