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.
A complex, lifted nose, showcasing sassafras, spices and aromatic oak. The palate is rich, with savoury notes, good weight, firm tannins and immense length.
100% wild fermentation with extended skin contact. Aged 21 months in 100% new French oak barrels.
