As we all know (unless you are a boxer that's taken a few too many blows to the head) that O is not for awesome but the latest release from Brancott blurs those lines a little as it could be said that this O is awesome. O is also for Omaka, where this wine hails from in Marlborough. It is a fantastically rich Chardy where the 40% new oak is easily soaked up by the luscious golden fruits. Wild fermentation, lees stirring and full malolactic has added complexity and texture. 
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"​This is a highly-textured wine with flinty characters that marry beautifully with strong stone fruit and citrus notes and a toasty and mealy complexity. The luxurious palate is rich, soft and full with a peaches, cream and nutty-like quality and full textural finish."
Top 5, 5 Stars & Best Buy Cuisine Chardonnay Tasting, August 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​The top chardonnay from Brancott Estate has been garnering its share of accolades over recent times. This 2016 release is a bright pungent wine, showing flinty complexity over a foundation of crisp grapefruit-infused fruit. “Excellent texture,” noted Michael Brajkovich. Excellent value, as well."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2016 Vintage)
"​This oozes class from the outset. The bouquet is nutty and mealy with shortcake crust, brioche, gunsmoke and wild yeast scents and there is plenty of oomph and flavour in the palate that’s harmonious throughout. I get juicy ripe stonefruit, a touch of grapefruit zest, all those lovely nutty, mealy connotations, beautifully integrated creamy oak and a long, concentrated finish. Outrageously good and an excellent follow on from the Trophy winning 2015 edition which was also my Wine of the Year."
