O'Leary Walker First Past The Post Chardonnay 2015

This sits somewhere between the trendy new gen Chardonnay and the old school oak dominated type. And I like it - a solid wine.

Nectarines, yellow fleshed peach, almond meal, a suggestion of marzipan, pear skin and a dash of citrus zip. A coat of creamy oak for interest adds appeal and that peach runs hard on exit. Soft and generous, there's many reasons to rejoice here.

Will cellar for 3-5 years.

Very good.
