Tarrawarra Estate Chardonnay 2014

An unpretentious Chardy which is a reliable go-to. A good effort considering the issues 2014 delivered the Yarra Valley.

50% tank fermented and the remaining half fermented in barrel. The finished wine then sat in French oak for ten months, 10% of which was new.

Almond meal, citrus, a lick of peach and some faint vanilla is cuddled by creamy oak with a reasonable finish. A wine which is not overly deep but not thin either.

I wouldn't say no if offered a glass.

Drink short term.
