Shakre not to be confused with Chakra but some shared iconography on the label, in a way, or maybe that’s just a gypsy and I am WAY off the mark. Anyway, the wine is from Margaret River and the entrepreneurial hands of Nick Stacy.
Fairly neutral in perfume but you get to sniff on some sandalwood-like oak barrel characters and there’s a hint of stone fruits in the mix too. Even, cool flow of flavour across the palate, again, fairly neutral in make up but pleasing and easy to drink even if it’s missing some ‘Chardonnay character’ and tending down the leaner, greener spectrum. Finishes shortish and chewy. It’s ok. Rating 87 - Drink by 2020, Mike Bennie, winefront.com.au (FEB/2015).
Winery Tasting Notes
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 textual 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 will provide all the brightness and freshness that makes it a casual uncomplicated white wine accompaniment to any meal while also having sufficient complexity of structure and texture to be a ‘stand alone’ wine of merit.
