2010 Geoff Merrill Botham Merrill Willis Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
89

A light yellow in colour.

The nose has a saturation of ripe melon, peach blossom and toasty oak , with the 2010 made in a style that will really appeal to those who like a dense mouth filling chardonnay.

The wine has an array of textures as it moves across the palate, with soft fruit characters given some gritty depth and grapefruit like astringency, in terms of flavor there are candied peaches, melon and generous oak inputs.

The wine has considerable length, with a drying character on the finish detracting slightly.
