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.
Wild ferment, matured for 8 months in French oak (50% new). Salted pineapple, rockmelon, guava and pawpaw on the nose. The nose suggests a big wine, but this is anything but. On the palate, it is surprisingly delicate, the flavours lingering through into the long finish. Really classy and fine.

As has been a consistent thread in recent years this release from Credaro is hitting above its price point; a wonderfully complex expression of Margaret River Chardonnay. The nose sees flint, fig and almond meal set against pristine white peach and ripe fig. The palate has a crystalline baseline of lemon and grapefruit acidity that is a wonderful counterpoint to fuller stone fruits and a veneer of oak derived spice. The length is driven by stone fruits and citrus with a weave of brioche. Drink to: 2021 - 2030; Rating: 95 Points; Patrick Eckel; The Wine Reviewer
Exquisitely composed and elegantly expressed, the wine shows nectarine, vanillin oak, lemon zest and brioche characters on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate offering outstanding focus and drive. It's brilliantly structured by creamy mouthfeel and bright acidity, finishing persistent and engaging. At its best: now to 2030; Date Tasted: May 2021; Price: $40.00; Rating: 95 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
