Origin: Margaret River
Region: Western Australia
Style: Full-bodied white wine aged in new oak
Really good Chardonnay, even when drunk slightly warm (happens sometimes, we have to admit it). Some solid complexity coming through with ripe tropical & stone fruit followed by barrel fermented tones of brioche, vanilla and butter. Zippy acidity highlighting the fruit, preventing it from being overripe & heavy. Big alcohol as well, but balanced. Long finish.
Amato Vino was one of the first wineries we acquired through Burnt Ends Cellars and we’re immensely proud that their exposure has managed to grow tremendously over the years. Brad & Sharon are a super-chill duo making wine from two of Australia’s top regions – Margaret River and Riverland. WA is reserved for their classic styles of Chardonnay and Cab Sauv, while South Australia’s Riverland is where the lo-fi magic happens. Single vineyards, handpicks, natural ferments. Clay amphora for fermentation and maturation. All the wild stuff with grapes such as Savagnin, Chenin Blanc and Primitivo.”
