Drayton's Family Wines Chardonnay 2012

A well priced and good value Hunter Valley Chardonnay.

The whiff of buttered toast reminded me of breakfast time. Nectarine and cashew aromas followed. Lifted and not heavy. A neat start.

The wine fills the mouth well with an attractive palate warmth. Not too heavily oaked, but the oak is still thereabouts. The lingering cashew nuttiness a highlight. Those who shy from oaked Chardonnay may not jump on board with this.

A good drop and I'd be happy to indulge in a glass or two.
