This dry, textural and savoury rosato shows aromatic spice, bramble fruit, orange zest and ruby pomelo.
2021 Chalmers Nero d'Avola2021 Chalmers Nero d'Avola$28.00
Single-site Nero d’Avola from the family that first brought this grape into Australia. The grapes were handpicked on 12th and 17th March 2021 from the Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote, where soils feature a combination of ironstone, dolerite, green basalt and quartz. Wild fermented as whole berries. Unfined. Unfiltered. Vegan friendly. Vibrant and juicy, with captivating notes of wild raspberry, redcurrant jelly, bay leaf and graphite and fine tannins.
2020 Chalmers Fiano2020 Chalmers Fiano$36.00
Fiano is a vine variety this visionary grape-growing family first imported into Australia in 2002 and made a first wine from back in 2005. This single-vineyard wine from the family vineyard in Heathcote is a graceful, balanced and driven Fiano with notes of lemon curd, pine needle, sorrel and almond.
2020 Chalmers Dott Ribolla Gialla2020 Chalmers Dott Ribolla Gialla$29.00 $25.00
The Dott. series of alternative grapes brought into Australia by Chalmers is dedicated to the late Dr. Rod. Bonfiglioli, who encouraged the family in their pursuit of the new and unusual to this country. The grape grows in Friuli, Italy and Slovenia. Light straw hue. Delicate aromas of snow pea, apple, citrus and jasmine. It stretches out on the palate, extending its flavour reach to include muscat, nougat and dried pear, brought into line nicely by firm acidity. Makes a striking impression. 500ml. 92 points. Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion 2022
2018 Chalmers Lambrusco2018 Chalmers Lambrusco$43.00
This superb and utterly original Italian-inspired Australian wine is made in a dry, aperitif style. It's vibrant and affirming with notes of violets, blackcurrant and spice, with a slight but assertive tannic grip.
2018 Chalmers Felicitas Sparkling Fiano2018 Chalmers Felicitas Sparkling Fiano$43.00
Wildly aromatic with elderflower, honeysuckle, chamomile grass, peaches, Golden Delicious apples and fresh beeswax on the finish. Quite the classical Fiano, this is seductive, ripe and floral, with lively acidity and a gentle mousse. In 2022, this is drinking really well and if you are unsure as to what to do with such a cheeky delight, try a garlicky,  sticky pork belly (or tofu!) with rice, greens and black sesame seeds. 93 points. Curly Haslam-Coates, The Wine Front
2018 Chalmers Dott. Schioppettino 500ml2018 Chalmers Dott. Schioppettino 500ml$29.00 $25.00
Interesting wine. Interesting drink. Definitely worth buying. It’s dry, savoury, includes a mid-weight serve of juicy/berried fruit, and has a reasonable tether of slightly-rugged tannin. It’s 3-years-old but it feels fresh, almost zippy. There’s more than a little unami to this. Almost a seaweed aspect, positively so. A dry, woody herb aspect. It’s good. 91 points. Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
2018 Chalmers Dott. Pavana 500ml2018 Chalmers Dott. Pavana 500ml$29.00 $25.00
The pretty, rich garnet-coloured 2018 Pavana has an intense fragrance of fresh wild raspberry, dried figs and Darjeeling tea leaves. The palate is vibrant with rhubarb, rosehip and geranium characters, plus a hint of that Heathcote charry note, backed by a subtle tannin structure around a long acid line.
2018 Chalmers Dott Malvasia Istriana 500ml2018 Chalmers Dott Malvasia Istriana 500ml$29.00 $25.00
The 2018 Malvasia Istriana is golden straw in colour and has delicate spiced apple, lemon and hay aromas with a crisp, mineral palate of freshly cut red apple, fine structure and pleasant acidity.
2017 Chalmers Rosato Magnum2017 Chalmers Rosato Magnum$58.00
Whole-bunch pressed (no saignee), wild yeast, 63% aglianico fermented in barrel, 33% sagrantino and 4% nero d'Avola co-fermented in stainless steel. The whole bunch pressing is reflected by the very pale pink colour, the barrel fermentation by the spicy overtones to the bouquet. The palate is dry, but juicily fruity, with an even flow of small red fruits from start to finish. One for the nerds, but also for those who know just how high Australian standards are by world comparison, thanks to our winery technology. 93 points. James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 
2017 Chalmers Lambrusco Appassimento 375ml2017 Chalmers Lambrusco Appassimento 375ml$48.00
The aroma and flavour of pure, rich prune and crushed, woodsy spices. It's soft, mouthfilling, well-balanced and exceptionally easy to drink. It's a curio, but a good one. The word 'pure' should be emphasised. 375ml. 93 points. Campbell Mattinson, 2020 Halliday Wine Companion
2016 Chalmers Aglianico2016 Chalmers Aglianico$43.00
Excellent. It's a wine of gravity and presence. It tastes of bright berries, florals and leathers and and when it says goodbye it shakes your hand firmly. It's not heavy but it means business. 95 points. Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion 2020
