“The Chardonnays I have tasted so far from the 2022 vintage in Margaret River remind me of the 2014s, in their soft acidity and primal, almost unbound fruit power. Here, the 2022 Kevin John Chardonnay leads with crushed nuts, salted yellow peach, red apple skins, preserved citrus rind, yuzu, green tea and saltbush, before tumbling into the flavors in the mouth. Toffee apple, nuts, curry leaf and saffron. Concentrated, piercing and intense. The acid envelops the tongue and holds it hostage, while the fruit explodes with power. The Gingin clone is on show here. The wine trails to a soft, juicy finish. It is lingering, very good, excellent, even better after a gentle decant and served in a big Burgundy glass.”

“The mid-yellow colour is not 100% filter-bright (presumably unfiltered), and it has a fluffy baker's yeast bouquet with an edginess that suggests and struggling fermentation, together with creamy, cashewnutty, bready nuances, lemon juice as well, dried pear appearing later. The palate is quite delicate and reserved, youthfully undeveloped and dry, the line seamless and long with a core of sweet fruit followed by distinct tannin which adds a gentle, drying grip. Very good intensity, the palate especially appealing. A powerful chardonnay that dances to its own tune”
