Somerled Steeplechase Chardonnay 2011

Coming from an Adelaide Hills producer, I really liked what I saw here.

A very tidy sniff of honey and nutty characters. Aged in Hungarian oak, creamy, burnt butter and toast aromas are thrown into the mix as well.

Plenty of vanilla flavours bouncing around with nectarine and peach at the fore. Not too dry and as I termed at the time of tasting, "an uplifting dryness"...whatever that is :)

A long finish which is soft and moreish, and just as all is gone, some cashew flavours bob up again.

Get some I say if you can.
