  • When two men met in a small village in France in the Burgundy wine region, they were instantly connected through their passion for Pinot Noir. This friendship has bloomed into a partnership producing a collection of both Fine West Australian and Burgundian wines, using classic grapes, and techniques

     Burgundian winemaker and biodynamic ambassador Pascal Marchand ex-régisseur from Domaine Comte Armand and Domaine De La Vougeraie and Jeff Burch, vigneron and owner of Howard Park and MadFish Wines with small parcels of hand-crafted Australian wines from carefully selected fruit parcels from vineyards in both Margaret River and the Great Southern, Western Australia.

    A pale and limpid straw in appearance. Delicate floral aromas of honeysuckle, orange blossom and jasmine, embellished with pear essence, nutmeal and lemon curd provide an enticing entrée to the palate. Flavours of stone fruit, melon and fig meld with nutmeal and caramel in a silky and seamless manner. The fine, mineral acidity and oak tension given restraint, texture and length to the palate.

Winemaking

The Marchand & Burch Chardonnay is sourced from two vineyards, one in the Porongurup and one in Mount Barker. The Porongurup region takes its name from the ancient, granitic bolder-like landform that dominates the landscape. Our vineyard sits at an elevation of 333m on the warm north-facing shoulder of this volcanic outcrop. Planted to the gin gin clone, yields are typically low, berry size irregular and flavours, sweet and intense. Located on the eastern or Porongurup boundary of the Mt Barker sub-region, the Mount Barrow vineyard is dedicated to growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for still and sparkling wine. The unique attributes of this site include an elevation of 380M and a panorama of vineyard aspects from north to south facing. Planted to clone 95 and 96, the C block sits on a south east facing slope. The vine density at each site is 2,222 vines per hectare and the canopy a single cordon with vertical positioning of shoots.
