Our aim is to remain as an established boutique family owned and run winery which consistently produces a small quantity of exceptional, full flavoured elegant wines which reflect the unique qualities of the Swan Valley and Pemberton regions of Western Australia
Our famous Chardonnays, Cabernets and Liqueur wines are testament to our commitment and vision.
John Kosovich Wines has forged a reputation for outstanding white wines. In particular, our Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc have been recognized among the best that the industry has to offer. Our current release of white wines continue this fine tradition.
2016 Swan Chardonnay – $36
Beautiful lifted spice and mineral notes on the aromatics. The wine shows great poise and refinement with typical Chardonnay notes of peach and subtle melon. Barrel maturation is very gentle and allows just a nice hint of light complexity through gentle lees stirring during its time in oak. A perfect acid balance ensures length of flavour and refinement. Perfect with chicken, risotto or grilled prawns. Really anything is a great match with Chardonnay.
A classic Swan Valley variety renowned for its richness, complexity and full fruit flavour, this example is made to a dry style and we focus on freshness and fine acid balance, Fresh, crisp and lively on the finish showing melon and tropical fruit flavours. A great accompaniment to a wide range of dishes.
This fine, elegant Chardonnay is produced from fruit grown on our Pemberton vineyard. The fruit was hand harvested and the wine was matured for 6 months in French oak casks before bottling. The flavours combine tropical hints, buttery texture and punchy ripeness. It is mouth filling and rich, with excellent balance of oak and a tight acid structure, with a clean and elegantly refined finish. This wine will reward careful cellaring up to 12 years.
2013 Bottle Aged Chenin – $36.00
This wine offers upfront lime and toasty hints from the time in bottle. Slight apple tones are evident. Beautiful mouthfeel and texture with long flavour length supported with beautiful acid balance.

Elegant, refined and easy drinking are the hallmark of our red wine. Our philosophy is that the fruit should do the talking, and you will find that our reds are not over oaked, tannic or high in alcohol. We want you to enjoy your 3rd and 4th glass as much as you do the first.
