Aylesbury Estate The Pater Series Chardonnay 2020 - In Bond

Aylesbury Estate The Pater Series Chardonnay 2020 - In Bond

  • Australia
  • Chardonnay
  • ABV 13.8
  • Zalto Denk'Art Burgundy Glass

Stuart McCloskey “The bouquet takes a little coaxing (I suggest a quick decant which I failed to follow). Then, we are greeted by a medley of poached pear, melon, spritzy lime zest, confit grapefruit, freshly grated ginger, lemongrass, orange oil, fresh mint, and the sweetest spice(s). The magic happens on the palate – the textural feel is astonishing. Oily with layer-upon-layer of seamless, silky poached fruits. Genuinely, this is mind-blowing stuff. No, this is not unbalanced – this is magical. I love the density, the generosity and if you hadn’t noticed, I am rather smitten by the entire content (label looks swish too). Emphatically long and finishes with a wonderful framework of acidity and sweet spice. This is equal to any Chardonnay costing £40.00. Stupidly, we only purchased 240 bottles. Why I didn’t buy a full pallet is quite frankly stupid. I strongly suggest you serve in a large, bowled glass – I used Zalto’s Burgundy stemware. Delectable now but has all the faculties to cellar for at least 6-8 years.”

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit “Stylish and seductively complex, the bouquet shows apricot, lemon pith, vanilla and hazelnut characters with hints of flint and oatmeal. It's refined and richly textured on the palate displaying outstanding depth and persistency. Wonderfully framed by bright acidity, making it superbly structured and engaging.”

Aylesbury Estate

Ryan Gibbs, the owner/operator of Aylesbury Estate, has a rich family history in the Ferguson Valley. Pioneers of the area, the Gibbs family migrated to Western Australia from Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire in 1844. The Gibbs family arrived in the Ferguson Valley in 1883, and since that day, the family has lived and worked on the same piece of land, passed down an unbroken chain of succession through five generations. Historically, they have produced citrus, stone-fruit, potatoes and dairy. Ryan now focuses on beef production and of course, high quality wine-grapes.

Located in the Ferguson Valley within the Geographe wine region, the Aylesbury Estate property is home to a 200 strong Angus beef breeding herd, complimented with vineyard plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and most recently, Vermentino. This fruit is used in the Pater Series, QO5 and Waterfall Gully ranges. Since 2018, they expanded their property to include the highly awarded 52 Stones Vineyard, where they grow Chardonnay, Arneis and Gamay.
The Ferguson Valley climate is similar to Western Europe – with the Douro Valley of Portugal being the most alike. Cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers provide the perfect conditions for grape-growing. The native Australian forests surrounding the property provide pure, clean water for the vines throughout summer. This pristine environment is incredibly well suited to the production of high-quality grapes, which in turn helps Aylesbury Estate to create beautifully complex and balanced wines.

Put simply, these wines are wonderful. Their Gamay is, by far, the best Aussie example we have ever sampled and more akin to Pinot Noir than Gamay. That said, ... Read moreGamay it is and recognisably so, but with more deliciousness thrown in… Aylesbury Estate, in my humble opinion, produce wines which deliver absolute satisfaction.

I have sampled, re-sampled and taken every bottle home with me (several times, if truth be known). Each time, and each bottle, I am left with a euphoric grin.

Hail fabulously made wines, full of personality, packed with flavour and superbly priced. I hope my tasting notes provide the key to unlock their competitively priced brilliance.
