Chalice Bridge 2005 Margaret River Shiraz

Back in August we offered the final stocks of the 2004 Chalice Bridge Margaret River Shiraz. It was a wine that justly deserved rave reviews from Halliday and Hooke. We sold out within 24 hours and most of you who got some emailed me looking for more. It was just that good and an outstanding under $20 red.
We tasted the 2005 at the same time about a week after it was bottled. I don't whether you know about the concept of bottle shock but this was a classic example. A wine you just wouldn't bother with.
We tasted it again last week and it was a different wine - virtually identical to the 2004. A superbly balanced, elegant red that is up there in the $30 category. Highly recommended even though it hasn't won a trophy as far as we know.

Our Price: $18 per bottle by the doz
