The bouquet is an enchanting mix of lemon myrtle, dusty pollen, waxy citrus and stone fruits. From lengthy time on lees.


The palate is supple yet rich in flavours of patisserie and nutmeal, freshened with bright citrus, ripe peach and melon. The fine savoury note and mineral acidity, so characteristic of the region, shapes the wine and gives a long finish.

Growing Conditions

The first signs of the approaching vintage began with budburst in the early spring of 2014 as the vines shrugged off their winter dormancy. During this formative period of growth, the weather conditions began to shape the vintage to come.
In the temperate climes of the south west of Western Australia, the preceding winter provided adequate rainfall for sustained vine growth. As the earth gradually faced more to the sun and spring uncoiled its impulsive nature, a warm, dry summer set the stage for a promising outcome. When verasion began, in late January, the native marri blossom was abundant in the Great Southern which sated the hungry silvereyes. The middle autumn period, so often spotted with potential cyclonic fallout did produce intermittent and lingering rain from mid to late March, which slowed the red harvest and cooled the seaso In summary, the 2015 vintage is a mix bag from the Great Southern.


The individual vineyard blocks that comprise Flint Rock Chardonnay are vinified separately. Each batch is hand-picked, cooled and sorted before pressing to extract the free run juice. Fermentation and malo-lactic occurs in a combination of older French oak and stainless steel tank. The temperature of fermentation is between 18ºC to 22ºC and the lees are stirred from the end of fermentation and throughout the malo-lactic. After 10 months on lees, the wine is combined in tank and held for 2 months prior to fining, filtration and bottling.
