Stuart Pym brings considerable winemaking experience to Flowstone, with over 30 years at some of Margaret River's best known wineries including stints at Voyager Estate, Devil's Lair and Stella Bella.
Aroma: Complex aromas of honey baked beurre bosc pears, stonefruit, roasted hazelnuts, nut-meal, hints of honeysuckle and creamy lees notes, offset by some funky flinty mineral notes. A complex expression of southern Margaret River Chardonnay.
Palate: Dense, focussed and intense - perfectly aligning the fruit and oak. The powerful fruit flavours are introspective at the moment, but still hold the palate together. Some years will see them blossom. The oak, lees contact and mlf give additional complexity. There is great texture and length, and a chalky acid to finish. The palate has great power and focus, but is not fat or heavy. This is a serious Chardonnay of substance and moment.
Drink: Now and over the next 16 years.
