“This wine is now firmly among the Margaret River chardonnay elite.  It’s sourced from a single site in the Wallcliffe subregion.  All wild fermented and matured in large-format French oak, with aobut 40 per cent of it new.  Wonderfully complex stone fruit, mineral and tight savoury notes.  Very long and powerfully sustained palate.  Classy wine.  97/100.  (Best drinking: Now to 2030).”
Ray Jordan, The West Australian, November 2018

“Lobster and chardonnay are culinary soumates – the intense grapefruit, peach and melon flavours of the chardonnay with its (oak derived) structural tannins act as a counterpoint to the sweet, seafresh meaty flavours of the crustacean.  That some of the best lobster comes from Augusta, just to the south of Margaret River adds a special note to this synergistic combination.  Cliff Royle knows the Margaret River region backwards with chardonnay his forte – his 2017 Walcliffe a testament to his skill.  This recipe takes the inherent power of the lobster meat and boosts it with the brash, tomato-based patatas bravas.  Power meets power.”
Peter Bourne, Gourmet Traveller Wine, December 2018/January 2019
