96 Points - Angus Hughson
Domaine Naturaliste is the project of highly acclaimed winemaker Bruce Dukes. After twenty five years of applying his craftsmanship to international and local producers, Dukes launched his own range of wines named after the Leeuwin Naturaliste Ridge; the dominant land form of viticultural significance in Margaret River.
Artus Chardonnay showcases the local Gin Gin Chardonnay clone to produce a vibrant, complex and textural example of Margaret River Chardonnay with a nod to “old world” Chardonnay. A wine with a wonderful recent record, the 2022 Artus is another sublime offering from Domaine Naturaliste.
"96 Points. This 2022 Chardonnay made 100% from the Gingin clone is a powerful and modern expression offering nectarine and mango aromas with a strong line of toasty oak, accented by chalky complexity. Long and sleek, it delivers abundant levels of flavour with a charming exotic lift, the creamy texture kept in check by fine acidity. Expressive and already drinking well but will build in the bottle. Drink: 2025 - 2035"- Angus Hughson, winepilot.com.
"95 Points. A touch of funk here, some smoky sulfides and toasty barrel derived character allied with nougat honey and toasted nuts. A wine of refinement and restraint as well as good depth of flavour, the refreshing acidity towing the flavour long through an extended finish."- Huon Hooke, The Real Review.
