Product Details

Domaine Naturaliste Floris Chardonnay 2019 Western Australia Margaret River

$27.95

Domaine Naturaliste Floris Chardonnay 2019 is a modern and engaging expression of our local clone into wine. This style is a co-evolution of Modern Australian food and wine culture, which has great emphasis on balance, freshness and hedonistic pleasure. The sustainably farmed vineyard is in the cool southern end of Margaret River. Floris exhibits delicate textures and floral notes reminiscent of white jasmine flowers.

All about complexity and texture, the richer fruit from the Wallcliffe district absorbing 10 months in French barriques (30% new, but low-medium toast). Fresh grapefruit also takes care of the oak of a carefully built wine.

About Domaine Naturaliste

Domaine Naturaliste’s wines are based on a significant understanding of the inherent strengths of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah fruit from the Margaret River Region.
Bruce Dukes, Winemaker/Director of Domaine Naturaliste, states fruit freshness, flavour and texture are the greatest qualities he pursues when crafting his wines. When asked if Domaine Naturaliste wines were natural, he replies “99% natural and 1% supernatural.”

Bruce Dukes

Bruce draws on decades of local and international winemaking experience – including four years at Francis Ford Coppola’s Niebaum-Coppola winery in California and a significant tenure at Pierro Winery locally. His time spent in California helped Bruce hone his exacting and confident approach. His winemaking philosophy is best described by wine expert Professor Steven Kolpan who noted in his book ‘A Sense of Place’ that, “Bruce Dukes articulates the art and science of winemaking with elegance and ease. Bruce knows that the best wines are made vine by vine, berry by berry…”

A University of Western Australia trained Agronomist with a master’s degree in Viticulture and Oenology from the University of California, science underpins Bruce’s approach to selecting fruit. The combination of his passion, artistic and intuitive flair make Bruce the gifted winemaker he is. Bruce’s passion for the region extends to his home life. Living at the base of Cape Naturaliste in the northern end of Margaret River with wife, Wendy, and sons, Oscar and Tim.
