Patina 'Little Wood' Chardonnay 2011

Owner/winemaker Gerald Naef's not afraid to release his wines with a little age on them. This Chardonnay, from Orange in NSW, is released as a 4 year old.

I struggled to see the aromatics I'd expect from the variety, somewhat muted, subtle creaminess, a little oak and stonefruit.

It was more about the palate: oak, stonefruit, some texture to broaden the profile. For me it lacked the decisive character I'd come to expect from the producer. 87
