CheckMate Fool's Mate
About this winery
The von Mandl family began their journey over 40 years ago. The first sign of the real potential of the vineyards came in 1994 with a surprise win at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in London for ‘Top Chardonnay in the World.’ The family has developed exceptional vineyards with distinctive Chardonnay and Merlot clones, some of which are now over 40 years old, at what are now CheckMate Artisanal Winery vineyards.
An extremely complex wine with aromas of yellow peach, melon, perfume and butterscotch with hints of graphite. The palate has a rich entry with flavours of peach and apricot, tension across the mid-palate, and great length backed by fresh acidity and sea salt on the finish.
