From Ryan Walsh and Freya Hohnen, whose families have been wine farming in Margaret River for decades, this Chardonnay is refined, age worthy and just plain joyous to drink. Medium gold in hue, the aromas are heady and complex in tones of orange, grapefruit rind, salted nuts, mushroom, gunflint, honey and copper penny. The palate is viscous yet chalky, sliced through the middle by crystalline acidity and more complex, mineral-driven flavors. Drink now–2026.
