Evans & Tate Metricup Road Chardonnay 2010
Opening with nectarine and peach characters on the nose with a gentle whiff of lemon, flavours are well rounded and deliver very good depth.
Very good palate weight and lingering spice on the finish got me excited. The mid-palate is where the taste buds tingle, but I felt it flushed out just a little too quickly on the back palate. Still, the length lasts for well beyond a minute and is delicious and moreish.
The balance of fruit and oak was another attractive feature.
For $22 this is good buying.
