Chalice Bridge The Estate Chardonnay

Cracka Value Rating
Out of Stock

Cracka Review

This subtly oaked wine from the Margaret river shows appealing white stone fruit and citrus on the nose, whilst the palate is vinrant and youthful with more apple and grapefruit flavours on the palate, a kiss of toastiness, and a dry, zippy, refreshing finish.Chill and enjoy with a cheese souffle.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Straw with slight golden hues.

Nose: Vibrant stonefruit notes of nectarine and white peach.

Palate: Bright and fresh fruit flavours of white peach, green apple and citurs combine with beautifully balanced acidity and good mid palate fruit weight. Slight hints of oak can be seen through it’s light oak treatment.

Food: BBQ WA dhufish with a fennel, apple & preserved lemon salad is the perfect accompaniment for our Estate Chardonnay.

Cellaring: This style is intended to be enjoyed without delay to maximise its freshness, so less than 2 years bottle aging is suggested. Stored under screw cap this wine will deliver the freshness and vibrancy that is the south of Margaret River.

Chalice Bridge The Estate Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Rob Geddes MW (2007 Vintage) says
Southern Margaret River delivers acidity and grace to its wines, full of fig, tobacco. Easy to overlook, there is more in the glass than you first think. If the 2007 is the shape of things to come look out!

Combines restrained oak and fruit selection with remarkable intensity and length of the melon, grapefruit and stone fruit palate; excellent balance and length.

A slightly richer and more deeply flavoursome Chardonnay than the previous year, which was very cool. Love the creamy nutty flavours with the drier roasted cashew and light grapefruit tartness. Supple texture with a lingering persistent palate profile.

Generous but not flabby peach, nectarine and melon supported by subtle oak; good length and balance.

Ken Gargett (2006 Vintage) says
Every good dbwwm reader has heard of the brilliant Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay, so there's no need to give it space here, preaching to the converted. Maker Bob Cartwright, a man of serious talent, has finally upped sticks and found a new challenge—at Chalice Bridge. Which means you can now get a genuine Bob Cartwright chardy for a fraction of the price. No steak knives though.

Fruit-driven, stone fruit, grapefruit and melon in a direct, light- to medium-bodied, nicely balanced, frame.

Elegant and lively thanks to its moderate alcohol and crisp acidity; melon and grapefruit flavours plus subtle oak.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the moderately complex bouquet with nutty/minerally overtones flows through into a restrained but crisp and well-balanced palate, with the light fruit not compromised by oak. Sensible winemaking.
