Made by our winemaker, Diane Miller, for her daughter, Arís, this wine is unique and special. Chardonnay with a touch of Pinot Noir (2%) provides the salmon pink hue. Seven years on lees has given plenty of complexity with layers of brioche, strawberries and stonefruits, all balanced with tight acidity and a dry finish. Enjoy with grilled snapper.

 

95 Points, Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2022  "This wine began its journey when Di Miller’s 20 year old daughter Aris was 12.  It was made largely as a blanc de blanc from chardonnay, bit a tiny amount of pinot was added to give it the colour. Extended time on lees has allowed that autolysis process to work its magic.  A wild combination of brioche and red fruit dominated by fresh strawberries and then a little background of charcuterie.  Really impressive wine."

 

92 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review.  Rated #9 of 129 NV Chardonnay blends in Australia  "Medium salmon-pink colour showing some age in the blend, the bouquet very pinoty with smoky strawberry and dried-herb aromas. In the mouth, it's intense and refined, delicate yet driving and beautifully focused on the mid-palate. The acidity is refreshing and the finish appetisingly dry. All things in harmony. A smart wine and excellent value."
