Oakvale Ablington Vineyard Chardonnay 2014



The specs seem great - single vineyard, low yielding, handpicked and 35 year old vines. I just wasn't convinced in the glass.  Aromatics of lemon and stone.  The palate seemed slightly soapy, with flavours reminding of lemon pith and a dilute character.  Picked on 17 January.

Rating: Acceptable, Abv: 12.9%, Price: $33, Source: sample, Vendors and website: http://www.oakvalewines.com.au, Tasted: 2015
