Chater Dry White Sauvignon Blanc 2005 13.5% 6.00€
Light yellow in the glass with a nose of citrus fruit and yeast. On the palate it hits you with tropical
fruit s and an aftertaste of shortbread and leaves with a clean fresh finish. A great Sauvy to enjoy
with seafood, fish and poultry.
Chater Oak aged Sauvignon Blanc 200412% 10.00€
A lovely hue of yellow and green in the glass with a nose of honeysuckle and other floral aromas.
On the palate you have fresh citrus with oaky tones and you are left with a refreshing pleasant
after-taste. This is a different SB with a character that will appeal to a lot of wine drinkers -
you have to try it for yourself!
Chater Oak Rose 2005 13% 5.00€
This is different to any other Rose that you have drunk! When I first tried it away from the winery
I was struck by the colour a good red but bright and clear; the nose of really fresh strawberries
and the taste of fresh summer berry fruits. My immediate comment was that this wine would win
golds in most wine competitions. And when I visited the winery I found that it had won 10
awards including 4 Golds!
Chater Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 200413% 6.00€
80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes giving a wine with a deep- red colour. 9% in new
oak has resulted in a nose of spicy earthy tones while the palate has the complexity of the
grape blend along with spicy red currant tastes. A meaty wine with good length and structure.
A wine you could drink everyday with red meats and cheeses.
Chater Cabernet Sauvignon 200513.5% 7.50€
2005 did wonders for Cabernet Sauvignon with lots of sun and great ripening conditions. The result
a wine that is purple/deep red in the glass and a palate that is full of ripe red fruit flavours and
good tannins along with a pleasant long structure and after-taste. A wine to drink now of cellar
for years - excellent.
Chater Oak-aged Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 14% 15.00€
When you carefully select and hand-pick 60% of ripe Merlot and 40% of equally good Cabernet Sauvignon
grapes, vinified then with passion and expertise, put them to develop in new oak, then bottle them
when they are at their best you must get a flagship wine and this one is no exception.
A complex palate, great ripe fruit flavours, rounded tannins and a structure you have a wine
that will reward careful cellaring - drink in 2012 and beyond for a wonderful experience!
