Evans & Tate Metricup Road Chardonnay 2010

Plenty to like about this. Structure, length, lovely aromatics, and the price.

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.
