Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review: This Chardonnay shows so well Oatley's winemaking priorities of maximizing fruit expression and wine texture. Stone fruit and melon , w subtle oak on the nose lead to lovely pinapple and fresh fig on palate,creamy oak and vanilla and a long finish. Try this with lobster or baked salmon; everyone at your table will be smiling!
Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review: The Tic Tok had a delicious nose of tropical fruit, butterscotch, creamed corn, with a creamy moutfeel, and a repeat of the aromas on the palate. A terrific expression of lightly oaked Chardonnay with all the elements that I expect at that price point. 90+ points. Matt Steeves, Quercus Vino January 2014.
Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Satisfaction from the start to finish. Creamy and smooth tropical fruit, toasted oak, golden apple and pear. Loved this full-bodied chardonnay. Alcohol indicitive of Aussie sunshine but not overpowering. Paired nicely with crab dip appetizer.
Nick Onischuk Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review: Tic Toc Pocketwatch Chardonnay 2012 has beautiful aromas and flavours of tropical fruit, apple and a toast. This full bodied wine delivers great value for the price. Tasted January 16, 2014 (88/100)
A terrific example of a modern Australian chardonnay, where fruit and texture are the vital components with oak playing a supporting role. Lovely pineapple, creamy, spicy oak with a touch of vanilla and a long, textured finish. Source: Winery (Robert Oatley Vineyards)
