Exotic complex aromas explode out of the glass. White peach, white flower, lemon and lime rind are complimented by a sea spray and vanilla char from French oak.
Powerful flavours of lemon, lime and peach drive the palate, with delicate hints of almond meal and fresh popcorn. Generous fruit flavours balanced with precise natural acidity and ripe phenolics, create tension that will make your palate salivate.
Distinctly Southern Margaret River and uniquely Luminosa. Farmed from a single vineyard located in the Boodjidup Valley, each vine is curated & nurtured with an attention to detail that embraces our pristine natural environment. Gently handled to enhance the explosive yet elegant individuality and flavours that can only be Luminosa.
Situated at the top of the prestigious Boodjidup Valley, part of the Wallcliffe sub-region of southern Margaret River. An area renowned for producing some of the most internationally acclaimed Chardonnays from Margaret River.
A dry and warm summer meant vintage 2020 started a month earlier. This warm weather in our southern vineyards provided perfect ripening conditions. Lower yields produced some exceptional flavours and intensely aromatic, punchy wines.
Luminosa is made in the vineyard. The endemic Gin Gin Chardonnay Clone was handpicked in two parcels during the cool of the morning at the perfect flavour ripeness.
