This month I have been sampling wine from Roses Vineyard in Port Macquarie. If you get a chance to getaway over the Christmas break I recommend you call in and try some of the wine from their current range. They also have boutique accommodation available.
2011 Oaked Chardonnay
This is a lightly oaked Chardonnay which blends youthful fruit exhibiting peachy, stonefruit flavours with subtle oak to produce a well rounded, elegant wine, ready to be enjoyed now. It is soft, and complex, and should have a broad appeal. Cellaring for the next 2 -3 years will allow more buttery characteristics to emerge.
