Cooks Lot Handpicked Chardonnay 2014

Take a whiff and custardy oak rules the roost, a little too pronounced for mine.  Veiled honeycomb and then a squeeze of lemon sneaks through. There a creaminess and texture about the delivery from time on a small portion of lees culminating with a lick of mandarin peel to finish. I'm warming to it I must admit but the 2013 was a notch above I feel.

Drink now to six years.

90/100 - Very good.
