Jules Taylor OTQ SV Chardonnay 2016 (Meadowbank Vineyard)
Forward, familiar, giving bouquet of toasty vanilla wood tones surrounded by ripe yellow stone fruits of peach and nectarine, a definitive nutty burnt butter note – almost butterscotch in nature. On the palate – bold, fruity, oaky, buttery and packed with flavour; full (ish) in weight, balanced acidity, lengthy finish with kitchen spice notes then back to the fruits described above. Drink ow and through 2024.
