Singlefile are a boutique, family run winery dedicated to making single vineyard wines from select sites in the Great Southern of Western Australia. Their name pays homage to the geese who waddle in single file around the estate and the Latin on our crest translates to the pursuit of excellence – a principle they try and live by every day.

Singlefile Wines are unique expressions of Western Australia’s Great Southern. The approach is to track down the best fruit across the sub-regions of this corner of the earth, then apply minimal intervention to craft singular examples of the Singlefile style, stamped with the crest. Singlefile Wines are made in a thoughtful and refined style, with elegance and fruit-driven complexity and an enticing length of flavour.

The Family Reserve Chardonnay from Singlefile’s Denmark Vineyard is as intense as it is restrained. The powerful grapefruit and white peach aromas invite you in at first inhalation. Then take a sip and be subdued by the concentration of citrus and stone fruit, followed by a toasty almond complexity that begs to be savoured once again. Its creamy texture (thanks to the partial malolactic fermentation) runs along a linear structure that seems to last forever. Team it with poultry and seafood dishes, or allow it to age gracefully in the bottle for up to 10 years. 

Whole-bunch pressed and fermented in French oak barriques (40% new) for 9 months with some going through mlf, lees stirring, and judging by the liveliness of the acidity, it needed all that to bolster the palate. It's a bit of a yin and yang wine - richly flavoured with stone fruit dipped in spice, yet tight on the other with citrus tones especially lemon sorbet. Tightly coiled now but will go the distance.
