16.5/20 Points - Raymond Chan
"Dry to taste and light-bodied, soft and gentle flavours of citrus fruits are carried by a palate with a harmonious and vinous mouthfeel. The fruit is balanced with light butterscotch creamy hints and fresh acidity. Soft, grainy textures and nutty oak emerge, providing the initial linearity, and this fades to a clean, dry finish. This is a clean, light, citrussy Chardonnay with a butterscotch underlay" Raymond Chan

For those of you that love a full, rich chardonnay, this will not disappoint. A wine that displays slightly oaked characters with overtures of buttery vanilla and ripe grapefruit. A beautifully balanced single vineyard wine which offers outstanding value for money. Enjoy!

Buttery flavours, sharp acid finish, I'm no Chardonnay expert but this seemed to tick the boxes. No complaints at this price.

Definitely good value for money with this one! We felt it was similar in quality to the $20 West Brook (although the WB is a bit more complex). This one has moderate oakiness that is just verging on buttery tones - let this one sit for a couple years and these should really develop. Good drinking now as well. Medium gold in color, oak and citrus on the nose, oak/vanilla/butter tones on the palate. Definitely full-bodied. Crisp refreshing finish. We had with roasted chicken and it was lovely. I've got another bottle we'll let sit for a bit to see where those buttery notes go.

This review is for the 2012 vintage which I bought & drank in March 2013 - many of the other reviews seem to be for previous vintages. The is a simple Chardonnay, crisp and clean with no obvious faults. I picked up little of the buttery flavours mentioned by others for previous vintages and despite the 5 Oaks name, I would guess this has seen little or no oak. It is refreshing to drink on its own or with chicken/fish etc and should appeal to people who usually drink savvy. I would not buy it again since I prefer an oaked Chardonnay but this is good value and much better than many of the $10 supermarket wines.

Almost four stars. Nice wine. I'm used to oakier Chardonnay, but I imagine that this would have quite a broad appeal. Would buy again.

I'm a big fan of the Five Oaks range, especially the pinot noir. Nice golden colour. Fairly buttery, not too sweet with a fairly strong finish for a Chardonnay. Overally not my favourite of all time (Westbrook...) but good buying at winesale's price.
