Koolama Estate Koolama Chardonnay Sheraton Trophy Winner 2007

Member Review by dannybond79:

Koolama is a new brand that has been developed by The Grower's Phil May, based on fruit he sources from a vineyard near Pemberton that he runs with eight partners. The 34ha vineyard was planted by May in 1999 and has been consistently producing excellent fruit under different labels. Koolama is a name that will start to make more of an impact as it is marketed.

Koolama Estate, Manjimup, Western Australia. Occupying 34 hectares of undulating terrain, nestled amongst the Karri forest just 13 kilometres from Manjimup town centre is Koolama Estate. The vineyard was initially planted in 1999 as a premium grape producer, supplying the majority of the earlier harvests to the Petaluma Wine Group. In 2005, the small syndicate of wine lovers involved in the ownership of Koolama decided to venture into the competitive world of wine production. The Koolama Estate label was then developed for the 2006 vintage. Since then, the vineyard has continued to remain a grape supplier to various premium labels. The label has experienced great success in the short time since it was established.With such accolades, Koolama Estate has already shown itself to be a first class label and will look to build on this recent success with each successive vintage.
