St Clair Family Estate

St Clair Family Estate 2011 Chardonnay Omaka Reserve 14.5%
N: Smokey; Rich in fruit and oak presence. Quite a light smoke overall but enough with for the stone and tree fruit intensity that a lovely balance emerges with a vanillin edge. There is a creamy and light butterscotch appeal.

4 Stars
P: Dry and quite intense with flavors that reflect the nose, a creamy and warm texture overall with a moderate complexity. The oak is definitely a feature on the palate - giving this wine quite a raw and youthful feel. The natural softening and harmony that will come to this wine over the next 12-18 months will benefit and reward those who choose to wait. 
4 Stars
