About the wine

Perfect white for foodies or for the cellar!
  • Angels, when Ben was asked what he thinks of Chardonnay, he didn't hold back! "More than any other variety in the wine world it should be a wine that makes you say YUM!". This wine does exactly that, returning to Naked shelves after an astounding 90% rated last vintage. A clean, fresh, stone fruit nose with hints of vanilla - the tell-tale sign of a cool-climate classic. The palate shows wonderful white peach and pear, bolstered by a subtle hit of richness and spice from the oak. The clean, refreshing acidity creates a finish that will have you licking your lips.

  • Ben and his team have been spending every waking moment in the vineyard improving soil health, and reducing vineyard yields to help intensify flavour development in the grapes. Growing alongside world famous black truffles and healthy hazelnut trees, this wine has Mother Nature's riches on its side! Every year brings another level of maturity to the vines, and the grapes for this wine were picked in multiple batches to ensure a mix of fresh, racy flavours, plus some richer, more bold characters for Angels to enjoy.

  • This wine is about as versatile as a chardonnay can be. Suited to almost any meal, its richness and finesse mean it will be your best friend when you're looking for a white with a little more 'oomph'. Pemberton is developing a reputation as one of the leading cool-climate chardonnay regions in WA. Ben's tip? It always pays to be ahead of the trends and snapping up amazing quality wines before the rest of the community catches on!

Best before
Perfectly suited to being opened and drunk tonight but certainly would be amazing to look at after 5 years in the cellar.

Serving advice
Don't be afraid to leave it open for a day (if you can!) and go back to it over time. The wine will evolve both in flavour and mouthfeel.

Food match
WA is developing an international reputation for Marron (a sweet, small breed of crayfish). Not only is it a personal favourite of Ben's, it is a delicate, sweet seafood and a great match for a Chardonnay from a cooler climate that has lively acidity like this one.

Meet the winemaker - Ben Rector

  • Ben Rector is out to show the potential of the lesser known vineyards of WA. With 20 years experience across some of Australia's premier winemaking regions, he knows exactly what to look for in grape growing quality, no matter the climate.
  • The Pemberton and Geographe regions of South West WA are Ben's main focus. His aged release reds have all sold out in record time, and his flair for Chardonnay is undeniable. 
  • Ben takes great pride in his artistic licence, always ensuring that his wines go above and beyond. Angel feedback is gold dust, and the support he has received has allowed Ben to increase his output astronomically. All this in two short Naked years...what will he do next?!
