About Chestnut Grove

Our Story

CHESTNUT GROVE IS A FAMILY OWNED WINERY

What began as a passion for wine in 1987 for Vic Kordic, has blossomed into an operation producing award winning wines. Brothers Mark and Paul Kordic now head the vineyard and produce cool climate wines with elegant and unique character.

As a small boutique operation Chestnut Grove is Estate grown and bottled. Well known for its acclaimed Verdelho, Merlot and Pinot Noir, the wines demonstrate the depth of flavour that can be attained with great soil, weather and wine making techniques. The Peppermint Creek and Tall Timber wines are also made with the same care, quality and distinction.

Chestnut Grove Estate verdelho 2015 ($20)

This has been one of the best verdelhos over the years. It seems to work so well in this Manjimup vineyard. Tropical fruits, citrus and a trace of grapefruit and cumquat. There’s a minerally edge to it, with the natural acidity taking it to a very long finish.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 3 years

Chestnut Grove pinot noir 2014 ($20)

Opens with a distinctive earthy forest floor note on the nose. This is a quite ripe and full pinot with lots of black fruit characters merging with just a little blue fruit subtlety. Smoky earthy notes with a ripe fleshy middle palate.
SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 4 years

 Our Pantry

EXPERIENCE OUR ESTATE GROWN GOURMET EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL AND VERJUICE

Manjimup, in the heart of Western Australia’s beautiful Southern Forests, is a food mecca.  Our climate and soils deliver ingredients of exceptional qulaity.

 Our gorgeous Extra Virgin Olive Oil has been hand picked and cold pressed to capture the pure essence of the variety and brings spice and flavour into gorgeous balance.

Our Verjuice is a modern twist on a classic style that offers the perfect natural acidulant for cooking. Hand picked on a crisp Manjimup morning, the high natural acidity of our Verdelho grape juice can add richness and subtle flavour to any recipe.


Wine Making Process

 

Manjimup often has the coldest maximum temperature in Western Australia.   The long, and relatively cool growing season, and the fertile jarrah and karri loam soils create the terroir which is perfect for growing intensely flavoursome grapes.  Chestnut Grove is a family owned and operated vineyard, and we take great pride in turning these grapes into wines of distinction in our Winery on the estate.
