We never get tired of beating the drum for this thoughtful producer. It’s difficult to talk about Blind Corner without mentioning the outstanding value, even if there is much more to say about this progressive Margaret River producer. An unshakeable core of energy and bohemian spirit runs the length of Ben and Naomi Gould’s eclectic range. In these unpretentious, delicious wines you can taste the passion of down-to-earth, talented growers living their dream.
In an exciting development, fruit for this year’s Ørange In Colour was sourced entirely from Ben and Naomi’s Quindalup vineyard (or ‘home’, as they call it). It’s a certified organic and biodynamic site, with typical soils of sand over pea gravel on a granite base. This year’s blend is 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Chardonnay. Hand-harvested fruit fermented wild on skins, with plunging by hand for the first few days before pressing to tank and barrique. The wine went through full malolactic conversion.
From another great vintage for the region, the 2023 is an expressive and flavourful wine with lip-smacking intensity and juicy appeal.
