Tyrrell's Old Winery Chardonnay 2012

This is Tyrrell's entry level Chardonnay and for the price, it delivers.

Flavours are clean and fresh, not choked with poor oak or fruit like some at the same price point.

Stone fruits, specifically nectarine skip about. Some vanillin oak. The palate offers a good texture too with some interest.

No malolactic fermentation has worked well delivering a vibrant wine.

I'm more than happy to recommend it to anyone seeking a cheap but good Chardonnay. I'm picturing fish and chips or some shellfish happily going with it.
