Wine Club De Vin (Canada's largest wine club)" Intense aromas of green leaf, gooseberries and greengages with limes, curry leaves and fennel: the same flavours show on the palate creating a flavoursome and distinctive wine."

The Winemaker “From the near perfect 2018 vintage this wine is typical of the style that comes from Margaret River tropical fruit mineral layers, and crisp acidity.”

Marko Schwinn "This Gold medal winning wine has intense aromas of tropical fruit on the nose followed by a tight combination of juicy fruit and minerality on the palate. It is mouth filling with plenty of textural layers and lively acidity. This is a very well structured wine. Even the most one eyed Marlborough NZ fan will think about switching to this Chapman Grove." (2016 vintage)

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 it's temperate, coastal location – which is very similar to that of Bordeaux.

The Sauvignon Blanc taste is one of the most identifiable in the world of white wines for a few reasons. First, it always has crisp, high acidity. Second, it has a chemical compound called pyrazine which gives grassy, herbal or bell pepper flavors. When grown in cooler climates or picked early, the herbaceous green character is most prominent. In warmer climates or allowed to hang longer on the vine, the pyrazine character diminishes in favor of riper fruit flavors ranging from grapefruit, to passion fruit and guava.
