Commune of Buttons Chardonnay Clover 2018
100% Chardonnay. Australian wine is in a constant state of flux; of change, evolution and revolution which sees new techniques, vines and wineries popping up all the time. One such winery is the wonderfully named Commune of Buttons. Siblings Jasper and Sophie Button returned home a few years ago to help save their family vineyard, planted primarily to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay twenty years ago by their mother. They began restoring the site and transitioning to organic and biodynamic principles, and at some point decided that rather than sell off their prized grapes to others, they’d turn their hand to winemaking. Their Chardonnay Clover is a small-batch, natural wine that is raw, expressive, and beautiful. Slightly cloudy in appearance, give it time in the glass to reveal aromas of honeyed cashew, beeswax, sea salt, citrus and spice while being generously textured. Commune of Buttons is one of the most exciting wineries coming out of the island continent and we simply adore them.
