Bronze - The Wine Companion (2018 Vintage)

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

The Winemaker “Vibrant in the glass – deep purple with bright red edges. The nose is complex and expressive. A mix of red / blue / purple fruits – the blend of varieties reflected in the broader spectrum. Oak – though present – is not imposing itself. Remarkably fragrant. Savoury notes in the tobacco and cedar zone add interest. Complex structure and great length created by the blend of varieties, a wine to try now but also one to cellar.”

Erin Larkin, The Wine Companion "All manner of green and herbal characters on the nose; jalapeño, coriander, bay leaf and sage. Yet on the palate the fruit and acid are ripe. This has some very attractive qualities, but at this stage all the components sit adjacent to one another, rather than dovetailing." (2018 Vintage)

A seriously elegant Bordeaux style blend that really captures what there is to love about the red wines of Margaret River. Aged for 12 months in older French oak barrels, it has great structure and length with all the hallmark flavours of great Cabernet blends – dark fruit, cigar box, cedar and soft herbal notes, yet with great intensity.

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.

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.
