Platter * * * ½ – Lightly oaked, French/American yet a strong presence. Adds oatmeal biscuit scents/flavours, leaves 2017’s palate savoury & dry, not as amenable as 2015 (4 stars, 87 pts). 2016 untasted.
This lightly oaked chardonnay was in wood for only 3 months. The subtle hint of combined French and American oak allow the citrus flavours to stand out with hints of vanilla.
