2013 Oakridge Estate "Over the Shoulder" Chardonnay Yarra Valley Top Pick!
2013 Oakridge Estate "Over the Shoulder" Chardonnay Yarra Valley

94 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Pale, bright quartz-green; a great example of what the Yarra Valley can give to Chardonnay by getting the picking date right, allowing the winemaking to fill a QA role, simply protecting what the vineyard(s) has given - here a wine of great purity, energy, drive and length, citrus and stone fruit (in that order) driving the engine." (2/2014) K&L Notes: Made by 20+ year veteran Yarra Valley winemaker David Bicknell. David is considered by many as one of the best Chardonnay producers in all of Australia. The Over The Shoulder label is basicall... Read More »

2014 Alkoomi Estate "Old Vine - Black Label" Riesling Frankland River Western Australia Top Pick!
2014 Alkoomi Estate "Old Vine - Black Label" Riesling Frankland River Western Australia

97 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Estate-grown 40yo vines, and only free-run juice, gives the wine a flying start. Its intensity is exceptional, driving along the palate with high speed, the Bickford's lime juice flavours running unabated through the finish and well into the lingering aftertaste. An exceptional wine."

2013 Amelia Park Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Margaret River Western Australia Top Pick!
2013 Amelia Park Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Margaret River Western Australia

95 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Light straw-green; a complex blend with considerable presence and attitude from the first whiff to the conclusion of the long, multi-flavoured and multi-textured palate; a small left field component was wild-fermented in stainless steel barrels. It is the overall intensity of the wine that really grabs attention, engineered by the way the flavours build across the palate."

2012 Leeuwin "Prelude" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia

94 points James Halliday: "Light straw-green; it is a tribute to the quality of the Art Series Chardonnay that this should be Leeuwin's entry point wine; there is a perfect balance between the grapefruit spectrum and the white peach spectrum, oak a near-invisible net holding the parts together, the length exceptional"92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is remarkably lush and full-bodied, yet remains lively and mouthwatering. Toasted nuts frame ample flavors of grilled pineapple and melon. Drink now 2017. The success of this wine should be a good indicator that, when released, the 2012 Art Series will be somethin ...Read More »

2013 Duane Coates Chardonnay Adelaide Hills Top Pick!
2013 Duane Coates Chardonnay Adelaide Hills

95 points James Halliday: "Single vineyard; wild yeast-fermented with fine solids in new (66%) and 1yo French barriques, aged on lees for 16 months with natural mlf, no stirring. A focused and elegant wine, balance the key, but also having exemplary length to its white stone fruit flavours; the lingering finish and aftertaste also score." (1/2015) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Mid straw in colour with a hint of green to the hue. The aroma shows citrus fruits in the company of exotic tropical notes of pineapple and guava, accents of spice and wood smoke add to the complexity. The palate is in ... Read More »

2012 Oakridge Estate Single Vineyard Series "d'Aloisio Vineyard" Chardonnay Yarra Valley (Elsewhere $35)

95 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed direct to French oak puncheons for fermentation and 10 months maturation. Here the slightly richer and layered nature of Lower Yarra Valley fruit is the point of difference, although this and the '12 Guerin Vineyard both have the hallmark Yarra Valley length of flavour; white peach and grapefruit make equal contributions to the overall flavour." (12/2013)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 J&J D’Aloisio Vineyard Chardonnay opens with aromas of apple tart, apricots and brioche with touches of cashews and mandarin peel. Medium-bodied and accented by a ...Read More »

2013 Duane Coates Semillon-Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills South Australia Top Pick!
2013 Duane Coates Semillon-Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills South Australia

94 points James Halliday: "A 70/30% blend, the grapes picked at different harvest times, but held in stainless steel at low temperatures to settle and combine prior to fermentation on fine solids in new and 1-year-old French oak, held on lees for 9 months. The oak cost, combined with the ultra-low extraction rate through basket pressing (less than half the extraction through a pneumatic press, at around 320l per tonne) make this a very expensive wine to produce, further insult to injury through the small bottling run of 200 dozen."

2013 De Iuliis Sémillon Hunter Valley New South Wales

94 points James Halliday: "Is already settling into a sound drinking place. It's all strung on a taut line of acidity but the lemon, apple, hay and spice notes give something to enjoy now. That said, it shows all the signs that, over the medium term at least, it will mature deliciously." (7/2014)91 points James Suckling: "Sliced apples and peaches on the nose follow through to a full body, bright acidity and a tropical fruit aftertaste. Drink or hold. Screw cap." (10/2013) K&L Notes: The Hunter Valley is renowned for producing some of the best Semillon in the world. This wine displays fresh, lifted citrus characters, a l... Read More »

2014 S.C. Pannell Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills

95 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Hand-picked, free-run juice, some wild ferment to add texture, which you meet in the entrance lobby before going through to the dining room with guava, passionfruit and sliced lemon piled on platters yea high. Having had your fill, leaving through the lobby brings forth a savoury farewell." (3/2015) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "The Adelaide Hills is recognised as one of Australia’s finest Sauvignon Blanc growing regions: the altitude, soils and weather patterns seem to draw the best from this variety and in 2014, I was lucky enough to take...

2012 Dalwhinnie "Moonambel" Chardonnay Pyrenees Victoria

95 points James Halliday: "Dalwhinnie's Chardonnay is the best from the region in virtually every vintage; barrel fermentation in French oak is not carried to extremes (solids, sulphides, etc), its quality coming from its finesse and perfectly ripened stone fruit woven through the oak." (2/2014) K&L Notes: This iconic estate nestled into a natural amphitheatre 2,000 feet up in Victoria's Pyrenees mountain range produces some of the country's most highly regarded and awarded wines that have attracted very high points from the world's top critics. We are extremely happy to offer a limited alloca... Read More »

2012 Yangarra Estate Rousanne McLaren Vale

92 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Grown biodynamically and matured in used oak. Tastes quite neutral at first but it reveals notes of nuts, ginger, honeysuckle and mineral as it opens and warms in the glass. Crisp finish but the palate is slippery and textural. Sweetish aftertaste. Delicious." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: This wine's flavours and aromas are more about the soil it grew in and the savoury characters of Roussanne than the primary fruit. The texture is its distinguishing feature, developed from the tannins in the skins, the waxy nature of the variety a... Read More »

2009 Mollydooker "The Violinist" Verdelho McClaren Vale South Australia

In case you aren't super in the know about Verdelho, this has lovely, ripe, round fruit flavors of stone fruit, pineapple and citrus that keep you coming back sip after sip. Just about all seafood! This is one white wine with good enough balance and ripe enough fruit to go with just about any simply prepared chicken or grilled summer vegetables. We also love it with soft, ripe cheeses, almonds and dried stone fruit. According to Wine Spectator: "A weighty, extracted style, with vibrant greengage plum and spice flavors, lingering on the slightly tart fin... Read More »

2013 Sittella Verdelho Swan Valley Western Australia

92 points James Halliday: "Pale straw-green; rich fruit salad and cream style; no shortage of flavour, ready now. Trophy Best '13 Verdelho, Swan Valley Wine Show '13." K&L Notes: Really exciting wine...the back story on this is that while in college I once found a few closeout cases of Swan Valley Verdelho in a random rundown corner shop liquor store...long story short, the stuff was delicious and it became our house wine for as long as the supply lasted! While traveling in Swan Valley some years later I was excited to taste this lovely bottle from Sittella and be transported back to my first ... Read More »

2011 Pressing Matters "R69" Riesling Coal River Valley Tasmania

95 points James Halliday: "Pale straw-green; a truly lovely young wine; near perfect balance of all its components, despite the (deliberately) high residual sugar; all-up, elegant but intense; the '10 gives a glimpse of its future." (7/2012)
