Robert Oatley Finisterre Margaret River Chardonnay 2018


From the Karridale and Wilyabrup districts of Margaret River, this delightful Chardonnay opens with lovely nutty notes reminiscent of grilled cashews. There is oak evident with the wine having spent 9 months in new French barriques, but it is integrating well. The palate is all peaches with a soft, creamy texture and very good balance plus a flick of underlying acidity. A quality Margaret River Chardonnay with a promising future. For me, 93, but that should climb in the coming years.
