Expert Review:
Mike Bennie- 93 points, Cracking drink here. Lots of ‘chardonnay 101’ with stone fruit, flinty mineral notes, nougat, cinnamon spice jostling in bouquet and palate – this is a great way to get a hit of chardy with bright, vivacious appeal on its side. Enough flavour and texture to win over the stalwarts of the variety, enough brisk, fresh feel to drive people into it. Just so. Lovely, lovely drink, punching well above its weight. An epic bargain.

Many years ago when Jason Searle was helping out at Bass Phillip he came across Bill Downie. Bill and Jason realised that they shared some common ideals for wine. A friendship was then forged during viticulture studies , a passion for wine with definition of place and interest was often the bonding agent. After vintage in Italy Jason returned to keep working on a part-time basis in vineyards while Bill's star was on the rise making a name for himself as one of Australia's brightest young winemakers. Firstly at De Bortoli and then creating the William Downie wines, all this whilst spending the majority of the year in Burgundy. As Jason began to put some ideas in place to start making wine, Bill, now back in Australia, put forward the idea of making them together. Save Our Souls was born. The intention was to make affordable wine that was removed from the shadows of typical ‘New World' wine making practices.
