About Chapman Grove
Margaret River, Western Australia
The Chapman Grove Wines philosophy is to strive to produce the best possible fruit from which to create world-class wines. The range focuses on the classic varieties best suited to the Margaret River climate, with French oak used to bring out the flavours of the terroir, creating a true expression of the region. Fruit for their three tiers of wine, Estate, Reserve and Atticus is 100% estate grown. The winery achieved the highly coveted 5 Red Star rating from James Halliday within three short years of first entering the Wine Companion in 2009.
The Atticus range strives to achieve the very best the Margaret River terroir can offer and is symbolised by the ‘Spirit of the Vine’ - Anima Vitium. These are wines small in volume but great in stature, and are only produced when the fruit harvested is of the very highest quality. Owner Ron Fraser named this super-premium range Atticus after his wife pointed out that he shared his philosophy on life with the crusading lawyer Atticus Finch from ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ - just because things have always been done a certain way doesn’t mean they can’t be done differently.’
