Preveli Wines Margaret River Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

If you want to treat yourself to a Chardonnay with flavor this wine from Prevelli in the Margaret River is just what you need. It’s got that regional signature of grapefruit and peach with the subtle integration of oak. A gallant chicken will happily submit itself to this wines cause so enjoy it roasted with all the trimmings. The palate shows ripeness and a creaminess that delivers immense flavor and length.

Winemaker's Notes

Another excellent warm vintage sees Chardonnay show its class. Hand-picked fruit displays an enticing nose of grapefruit deftly entwined with finely toasted oak. This blends seamlessly with a creamy mid-palate showcasing skilled winemaking and 11 months in premium quality French oak. It exhibits all the hallmarks of a beautifully blanced wine. Drink now or cellar to five years.

Preveli Wines Margaret River Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; barrel-fermented and matured for 11 months in French oak with less stirring; it has above-averatge complexity on the palate, with tight grapefruit flavour and a minerally structure, the oak having been marginalised along the way. Will repay cellaring.

Lifted, youthful peaches and cream-like fruit bouquet. Complex, racy palate with lovely creamy citrus flavours and a long, drying finish.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Bright colour; vibrant grapefruit, nectarine and toasty oak bouquet; the palate is zesty, lively and focused, with citrus acidity drawing out the finish; a tangy, yet highly flavoured style.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
A very harmonious and balanced chardonnay, covering all the bases; a whiff of oak on the bouquet is the main indicator of 11 months in French barrels, for the white flesh stone fruit and grapefruit of the palate are the dominant drivers of the wine. A worthy successor to the '09.

Tyson Stelzer (2008 Vintage) says
This is great value for Margaret River Chardonnay. Ripe stone fruits reflect the warm season, but controlled acidity and zesty grapefruit flavours stop it well short of becoming broad. Lees stirring in French oak contributes texture and mouth feel.

Ray Jordan (2008 Vintage) says
More full bodied and intense than the previous vintage. Pens with a mix of peaches and cream with some nice cashew and grapefruit edges. The deep and intense palate has some nice fine oak, influence. Fine sustaining acid brings life to the finish which is long and impressive.

Good depth of cedar oak and melon aromas and crisp, lively fig/honey flavours.

Elegant, very well-balanced and structured wine; stone fruit and melon; good oak; nothing out of place. Gold WA Wine Show '08.

Ray Jordan (2007 Vintage) says
This is a delicate Chardonnay sourced from the southern parts of Margaret River. Has a restrained grapefruit and spicy leesy character on the nose which is initially appealing. The oak is neatly integrated and allows some finely balanced fruit to persist to a long finish. Live this style for current or short term drinking as an aperitif.

Lifted nose that's flinty, gamey and complex, with excellent yeasty notes. Very buttery in the mouth - lovely flavours. A real class act!

Intense, archetypal top-class Margaret River chardonnay; crystal clear varietal character, with the usual Margaret River depth; nectarine and white peach fruit, subtle oak and good length.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Harmonious fusion of barrel ferment and malolactic influences; excellent balance of creamy and more citrussy/stone fruit/grapefruit flavours.
