Wine by Brad Mantra Muse Reserve Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Brad steps it up a bit with this multi-layered Margaret River chardonnay that would not be out of place at a posh dinner party. There's a truck load of melons and white stone fruits in this pup, along with hints of buttered croissants, yellow citrus and toasty oak. The palate is lighter to medium-bodied, with flavours of peaches sprinkled with roasted nuts, bright citrusy acidity, and a long, fruit-driven finish. This would be the bomb with a creamy chicken fettuccini.

Winemaker's Notes

Mantra Reserve wines are chosen for their inspiration, extraordinary character and perfect representation of variety and region.

The Muse Chardonnay highlights all that is spectacular about Margaret River Chardonnay - rich, ripe melon and fig, mineral peach and spicy nuttiness, toasty oak and creamy texture. Layers of lush flavour and textural richness coat the palate and linger long after the last mouthful.

...moments, fragments, thoughts, visions, people, places, sounds, smells, texture, touch, emotion, passion, desire, inspire, tempt, escape, revel, dream...

Muse - this is your mantra. Best lightly chilled - with creamy pasta, shellfish, risotto... and any Mediterranean fest!

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Bright green-quartz; a gloriously vibrant and juicy palate, white peach, nectarine, citrus and mineral wrapped around each other, oak a vehicle for the triumphant expression of fruit.

Ray Jordan (2009 Vintage) says
From the nose through to the palate the intense and persistent fruit shows an admirable restraint. The bouquet is all brioche, meal and grapefruit with subtle intrusions of cashew and citrus. The palate is precise with a focussed spice melon character. The oak use is excellent. A wine for medium term cellaring.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Has more complexity than Invocation, courtesy of riper grapes and a little more oak; the difference is not so much quality as a very different style.
