Deep Woods Estate was established in 1987 and acquired by the Fogarty family in 2005, making it part of the Fogarty Wine Group. Under the FWG banner, Deep Woods Estate has been transformed into one of Margaret River’s most awarded and highly regarded wineries.
The fruit for this wine came from select vineyards across the region, a large component of which was hand-picked. The fruit was whole-bunch pressed directly to two- and three-year-old French oak barrels with each of the parcels kept separate before blending. The wine was allowed to ferment 'wild' using indigenous yeasts and subsequently matured on lees for 6–8 months depending on the parcel. Little or no malolactic fermentation occurred. This Chardonnay is fresh, fulfilling, uncompromising and made true to the Deep Woods Estate 'house style'.
2018 Review: Complex wine, celebrating Margaret River as its place of birth. Fruit (white peach, nectarine and grapefruit), oak (barrel ferment, with toasted cashews and soft toast) and acidity (providing overall balance and length) all joining the party. Yet more celebrations anon. Bargain. Drink to: 2025; Price: $20.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2019; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 94 Points & Special Value Star & Top 100 Wines for 2019; James Halliday Wine Companion
