Ashbrook Estate Chardonnay 2008

90 points

Margaret River, Western Australia. 14%

Almost old-fashioned in that this is a very full flavoured style. Fine, cool-ish climate style but like Montrachet mixed with Meursault. There is plenty of fruit and oak flavour without it tipping into the ‘Dolly Parton’ styles of the past.

I’d prefer they toned the alcohol down a notch, it’s unfortunately noticeable.

Drink now, best before 2013.
