Domaine Naturaliste is the project of highly acclaimed winemaker Bruce Dukes. After twenty five years of applying his craftsmanship to international and local producers, Dukes launched his own range of wines named after the Leeuwin Naturaliste Ridge; the dominant land form of viticultural significance in Margaret River.

This 2019 Domaine Naturaliste Discovery Chardonnay is a vibrant expression of Margaret River Chardonnay, with grapes harvested at moderate ripeness to retain freshness and natural balance. A perfumed, delicate and textured example, this is bursting with plenty of stonefruit and citrus fruit flavours, with quality oak playing merely a support role. At this great price, you'd struggle to find better value Chardonnay drinking from any producer in Australia.

Review of the 2018 vintage included below;

"95 Points. Sourced from Wilyabrup and Carbunup. It is built on a deep-set core of natural acidity and deliberate fermentation and maturation in used French barriques. An elegant wine with perfect balance and length, the jasmine scents of the bouquet deliciously seductive. $24.00 13% alc. Drink By: 2027 Screwcap" - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.
