Family owned and operated since 1975, Ashbrook Estate is one of Margaret River’s oldest wineries. As is the tradition with this Chardonnay, 50% of the wine undergoes primary fermentation in brand new French oak barriques and the remaining half in stainless steel, where they remained and were matured on lees for 8 months. Malolactic fermentation was avoided to preserve the fruits freshness. After blending and bottling the wine is then given a further 12 months bottle aging before being released.

A delicious, intensely flavoured Margaret River Chardonnay.

Brilliant straw colour with a watery hue. Intense aromas of ripe peach and apricot overlaid with honeycomb sail through the olfactory senses followed by light butterscotch, citrusy nougat characters and subtle spicy cashew. Rich and full with a creamed mid palate feel, generous ripe peach, apricot and honeycomb flavours fill the mouth over citrusy nougat characters, traces of butterscotch and spice. A lick of vibrant acidity leads into a long fresh finish. Excellent length with a richly textured aftertaste dominated by ripe yellow fruits, honeycomb and citrusy nougat characters.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Alc. 14%

Other Reviews….
A generously flavoured chardonnay, standing out from a leaner pack. Mid to full-weighted, it showcases a panoply of stone fruits melded to dried mango and creamed cashew. A lick of vanillin oak adds texture to a salubrious whole, as the flavours stream long. Drink by 2026.
