Australian Wine Companion - Best Margaret River Wineries of the Regions 2020
Australian Wine Companion Best Wineries 2015

Since the release of the Chapman Grove range in 2006, Chapman Grove wines have been awarded 4 Trophies, 3 Top Gold, 3 Gold, 8 Silver and 39 Bronze Medals.

Jane Faulkner "Like its sibling, this is very tightly coiled and refuses to budge. There's the merest hint of citrus with shrill acidity and it feels disjointed. If anything, there's not the fruit weight to carry this.”

The Winemaker “Pale yellow – youthful – green tinges, which I equate with quality young chardonnay. Aromatics are instantly very serious. Intense fruit – nectarines and white peaches melding with lemon citrus – beautiful French oak hovering just above the wine at the moment – intense – more than a cursory nod to Burgundy. The tiniest whiff of sulphides – perfect for a wine of this age. When sipped, the wine shows its incredible intensity, no doubt derived from the very low yield.”

Erin Larkin "A single-vinyard wine, matured for 10 months in French oak (30% new). Opulent fruit is corseted by taut acidity that borders on aggressive. The fruit is wonderfully appealing; salted yellow peach, red apples and rhubarb, but you have to wait to drink it. Give the acid some time to work itself in." (2018 Vintage)

The Winemaker"Zesty lemon and citrus on the nose, the palate is alive with crisp clean Chablis characteristics, acidity and oak work hand in hand to create a long finish." (2018 Vintage)

This is a beautiful Chardonnay from an outstanding vintage in Margaret River – elegantly crafted, with more than a nod to Burgundy. Stone fruit and lemon curd notes abound, all backed by the gentle brioche notes of pristine French oak. There is an intensity and purity of flavour that elevates this wine, and the long, lingering finish will no doubt leave you wanting more.

James Halliday "A very successful venture under the control of CEO Ron Fraser. The wines come from the estate vineyards planted to chardonnay, Semillon, sauvignon blanc, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and merlot.....[The winery's] ultra-premium wines are under the Atticus label."

Atticus is owned by Chapman Grove Wines; a small winery focussed on making limited edition fine wines from Margaret River, Western Australia. Described by Australia's N#1 wine critic, James Halliday as "a very successful venture", the winery is known for its highly rated wines and was established in 2005 by an esteemed veteran of the industry, Ron Fraser. Pop Up Wine has secured back vintages of a collection of its highly rated wines.

Atticus utilises exceptional fruit which is all 100% estate grown to create its world-class wines. Its range includes varieties most suited to the Margaret River climate, with French oak used to bring out flavours of the terroir, creating a true expression of the region.

The winery achieved the highly coveted 5 Red Star rating from James Halliday within three short years of first entering the Wine Companion in 2009. Since the the estate's first release in 2006, its wines have been awarded 4 Trophies, 3 Top Gold, 3 Gold, 8 Silver and 39 Bronze medals.

Margaret River is a highly respected wine region in the southwestern corner of Western Australia. Famous for having a more "European" wine style than its counterparts across the country, Margaret River has made its name through its unusually refined Cabernet Sauvignon (often blended with Merlot), gamey Shiraz, intensely citrusy Chardonnay, and refreshingly grassy "SSB'" blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Margaret River's winemakers are particularly proud of its temperate, coastal location – which is very similar to that of Bordeaux.

Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay is made in a wide range of styles from lean, to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak. Bolder, richer, full-bodied and buttery Chardonnays are made using oak and are produced in California, Burgundy, and Australia. Unoaked chardonnays such as Chablis and those produced in Chile, New Zealand, and other parts of France are leaner and often crisp and mineraly, with delicate flavors. By law, if a label says “Chablis,” it must be Chardonnay.
