Chalari (greek for relaxed) draws on the ethos of being relaxed and chilled, and from my greek heritage. Dad was always one for sitting around with a coffee or a drink and watching the world go by. All Chalari wine is small batch, small parcels of grapes and selected from the best vineyards within WA. The wine is made ‘garagiste’ style at a small winery setup at our property in Roleystone (Perth Hills). To let the fruit speak for itself in the wine, intervention is only used where necessary. Unnecessary fining and additions are not performed on the wine. In 2017, the focus was on a 2 ton parcel of Riesling from Frankland River in the south of Western Australia.
