Metricup Road runs through the heart of Margaret River and since 1974, the lush vineyards of Evans & Tate have lined their way along Metricup Road as you travel through the region.
Pale to mid straw with a youthful green rim. Fruit is the dominant feature of this wine on both the nose and palate with the depth of flavour of this wine. Layers of aromatic, flavour and textural elements from wild barrel fermentation and time on yeast lees adds complexity. White peach, honeydew melon and lemon/lime citrus characters overlayed with savoury elements of dried herbs, flint, cashew and fresh toast.
Oak has played its part in forming this chardonnay; it has the layered depth of Margaret River, with stone fruit, rock melon and fig to the fore, citrus on the fringes and in the acidity.

Bright, light to medium yellow/green colour, with an interesting and quite exotic bouquet which is chalky minerally, gently reductive, lemon/citrusy and reminds me of Chablis. The palate is likewise delicate and dry, subtle and refreshing, with a chalky texture which contributes to a drying finish. An excellent Chablis impersonation!
