TarraWarra Estate Reserve Chardonnay 2014
All the elements are here for a great wine but they just don't seem to mesh as well as I'd hope.
As a whole, it just lacks continuity. Sure there's cashews, yellow stone fruits, whipped butter and vanilla oak. Citrusy acid chimes in to knock it into shape and it finishes long. But everything just seems to come and go with no real consistent flow, something you'd expect for the asking price.
Give it some extra time and it will grow into its shoes perhaps though I wouldn't be shelling out the $50 just yet.
