The Credaro family are pioneers to the Margaret River region, first settling in 1922 after migrating from Northern Italy. Initially involved in farming and the timber industry, small plots of vines were planted to provide the family with table wine. The family have now been commercially involved in the wine industry since the 1980′s. The Credaro family produce all of their own wines, in their winery in Northern Margaret River. Winemaker Dave Johnson enjoys a close working relationship with the Credaro Family in the vineyard and believes that this is crucial to getting the most out of every batch of Credaro fruit.
Elegance takes the pulpit from the word go, and doesn't relinquish it. The fruit aromas are grapefruit, nectarine and white peach, braced by zesty acidity that drives the wine into the longest finish I've encountered for some time. Oak is merely a vehicle.

When Margaret River chardonnay sings, it’s an opera. It tells a story about the region, the fruit and the symbiotic relationship they enjoy. The 1000 Crowns 2020 Chardonnay – an excellent wine – relies almost entirely on the quality of the fruit to tell the story. It’s pristine, pure, with real energy. Barrel work is beautifully integrated. I hear you saying, “as it should be,” but it is not always the case. Gentle, lifted florals introduce the wine with citrus blossom, honeysuckle before a display of citrus. Citrus is the star here. On the palate, it’s all lemon, a touch of tart quince, grapefruit pith and lime juice helping keep to a straight line led by brisk acidity. The tastebuds get a workout, the lips smack, the mouth feels the crunch and embraces the flavour. As it should be! Date: Feb 2022; Rating: 96 Points; Jeni Port; Wine Pilot
