“Nocturne is a boutique label by Julian Langworthy (whose “day job” is chief winemaker for Deep Woods and the Fogarty Group), and he focuses on Chardonnay and Cabernet in Margaret River. The regional wines are circa $35 and offer excellent value for the money. The single-vineyard wines are premium expressions of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. In this instance, I tasted the 2021 and 2022 Chardonnay and the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon, all three of which were impressive, as per usual for this producer. In particular, the 2022 Chardonnay shows tremendous promise—it’s delicious now, but judging by an older bottle of this wine that I opened a couple of months ago, we have very good things lying in wait for us, the drinkers. The acid is pert now, but this will ameliorate in time. Heartily recommended.”
