Shakré Chardonnay 2022
Shakre Chardonnay epitomises the new wave of Australian chardonnay and demonstrates why Margaret River has become the benchmark wine region in Australia for chardonnay. Sourced Knotting Hill located Wilyabrup the premier subregion of Margaret River.
Shakre Chardonnay is made from two components: the larger part (80%) was fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperature to preserve the delicacy and brightness of the primary fruit. The balance of the wine was fermented in French oak barriques to provide that essential palate complexity which makes Chardonnay stand out as the greatest of white wines. Bright, clean and more aromatic than usual, the Shakre entices you with its rich fruit and subtle oak nuances before enveloping the palate with spotless chardonnay fruit and citrus notes. With textural mid palate weight, there’s more here than meets the eye, with a crisp clean acid dry finish that lingers on, and on and on.
The Shakre provides all the brightness and freshness of a casual uncomplicated accompaniment to any meal while also having sufficient complexity of structure and texture to be a ‘stand alone’ wine of merit.
