Butler Crest Premium Range Chardonnay
Cracka Value Rating
Chardonnay out of the Margs has been a trailblazer for many years, and this mature offering from Butler Crest shows how lovely they can be as they age. There's richness and vitality to this wine as aromas of white stone fruits, vanilla cream, grapefruits and toastiness rise from the glass, whilst the palate is still stone fruity and citrusy, with some mellow-aged toast and honey creeping in, a nice creamy mouthfeel, and a smooth finish. This could stand up to rich poultry dishes, or even a nice Spanish omelette.
Nose: Bright lemon and apricot with hints of almond and vanilla cream.
Palate: Very well balanced. Fills the mouth with a ball of classic chardonnay characters. Subtle oak flavours, good high natural fruit acidity. Seamless transition of flow with a long drawn out finish.
