Moss Wood 2014 Chardonnay – Michael Pikarkus –

Rating: 4 Stars

Coming from the Margaret River area, this Chardonnay sees only a third new oak, the rest goes into older oak helping to keep the fruit’s freshness intact: hints of vanilla are carried by a gorgeous seam of fresh, ripe fruit that is tropical in nature, plus there’s the usual peach, pear and apple goodness to go along with it … on the finish you’ll find a lovely toffee/butterscotch feeling that coats the mouth with yum.
