2014 Oakridge Estate "Willowlake Vineyard" Chardonnay Yarra Valley

97 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed directly to French puncheons for wild ferment; 11 months maturation on lees. From the heart of the Upper Yarra (and its oldest vineyard), this has unequalled finesse and brightness to its fruit profile, ranging through grapefruit and white peach on the bouquet and palate alike." (9/2015) K&L Notes: Oakridge's wines re-define what many people think of Australian wines...they're the polar opposite of the over-ripe, over-extracted, "Fruit Bombs" as any wine can be. These wines are about balance, elegance and refinement. Winemaker David B... Read More »

2014 Oakridge Estate "Over the Shoulder" Chardonnay Yarra Valley (Elsewhere $20)

92 points James Halliday: "From the Beenak, Coldstream, Gladysdale and Woori Yallock districts, all hand-picked. Has masses of fruit that could only come from the Yarra Valley, its length unmistakable, but not at the expense of mid-palate presence. Made to be enjoyed right now." K&L Notes: Last vintage we sold thousands of bottles of this wine from K&L direct import Oakridge Estate. 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 basically estate fruit that... Read More »

2013 Oakridge Estate "Guerin Vineyard" Chardonnay Yarra Valley

96 points James Halliday: "Whole bunch-pressed straight to French puncheons for wild ferment on solids, then 11 months maturation on lees. Has the Oakridge stamp all over it: a complex, slightly funky bouquet and great drive to the long, elegant, perfectly balanced palate, oak merely a vehicle." (10/2014) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Local Vineyard Series Guerin Vineyard Chardonnay is intensely scented of lemon curd, lemongrass, lime leaves and mandarin peel with touches of struck flint, toasted cashews, cedar and ginger. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers a beautiful satiny texture and plenty of livel ...Read More »

2014 Vasse Felix "Filius" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia

93 points James Suckling: "A chardonnay with focus and precision. Full body, layers of fruit that are compressed with bright acidity. Persistent and beautiful finish." (2/2016) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Stylish, with a dried floral note weaving in and out of the green apple, lemon and melon flavors. Shows focused acidity and a long finish. Drink now through 2020. 180 cases imported. Web Only-2016 (MW)" (2/2016) 91 points Vinous: "The complexity of this iconic winery’s entry-level Chardonnay belies its price - Light, green-tinged yellow. Aromas of fresh melon, pear and Meyer lemon, with subtle hints of toasty lees and fennel emer ...Read More »

2015 Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills

94 points James Halliday: "Adelaide Hills enjoyed a picture-perfect vintage, with moderate yields ripening to perfection. No winemaking tricks, cool fermentation in stainless steel and early bottling. The wine verges on fleshy on the mid-palate, then finishes with a swagger of limey natural acidity on the long, fresh finish. Flavours? Grapefruit and a touch of passionfruit." 90 points Vinous: "Bright silver-straw color. Vibrant, mineral-laced lemon/lime and quince aromas are complemented by emerging notes of pineapple and mango. Emphatically fruity, focused and dry, showing a firm stony underpinning t ...Read More »

2015 Pewsey Vale Riesling Eden Valley South Australia (Dry) Back In Stock!
2015 Pewsey Vale Riesling Eden Valley South Australia (Dry)

95-96 points James Suckling: "Very pure lemons and limes here that are concentrated, stony and fragrant. There's very pure fruit focus here, as this has the right balance of acid and texture. It's smooth, fleshy, dense, really deep and will drink early and live long." (6/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting with pronounced green apples, citrus and white pepper, the 2015 Riesling leads to some notes of coriander seed and jasmine. Light, dry, lively and fresh on the palate, this Riesling is still a little tight, but possesses some spicy hints and great length. (LPB)" (6/2016) 90 points Vinous: "Light, bright yellow. Ripe citrus ...Read More »

2014 Howard Park Sauvignon Blanc Western Australia

95 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Free-run juice from Great Southern/Margaret River grapes has been partially barrel-fermented, the slightly smoky bouquet leading into an intensely focused palate, with the length and clarity more frequently encountered with high quality Riesling, a comparison heightened by attractive citrus notes that accompany stone fruit and gooseberry flavours."

2013 De Iuliis Sémillon Hunter Valley New South Wales (Previously $20.00)

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 »

2015 Grosset "Polish Hill" Riesling Clare Valley South Australia

97 points James Halliday: "The floral bouquet is still to fully open its wings and fly, but the palate makes you spring to attention, its natural acid structure providing a superb framework for the fruit to clamber all over. As you come back again and again, the purity and balance of the flavours shine even more brightly, the length and balance immaculate, lime, lemon and a hint of apple exactly pitched. It is a finer wine than the joyous Springvale. 12.7% alc." 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The coy, youthfully mute 2015 Riesling Polish Hill has a mineral and wet pebble laced nose over notes of lime leaves, yuzu ...Read More »

2014 Cullen "Ephraim Clarke" Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Margaret River Western Australia (Biodynamic) (Elsewhere $35+)

92 points Vinous: "Light, hazy yellow. Smoky, assertively perfumed aromas of poached pear, melon and lemon curd are complemented by suggestions of fennel, jasmine and vanilla. Supple and broad on entry, then more taut in the middle, offering juicy orchard fruit and orange zest flavors and a hint of toasty lees. Shows a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes sappy, smoky and very long, with a sexy floral quality. This complex wine reminded me a lot of a top-notch white Bordeaux. (JR)" (3/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Youthfully mute with a subtle lemon curd and apple-laced nose, plus nuances ...Read More »

2014 Moss Wood Sauvignon Blanc-Sémillon Margaret River Western Australia

94 points James Halliday: "A powerful and complex blend, seemingly made without oak (and not needing it); there is a broader spectrum of flavours than those of the Sémillon, but with slightly less intensity." (7/2015) 91 points Vinous: "(fermented in stainless steel tanks, with 40% of the wine then transferred to used French oak barrels for three months): Pale gold. Lively, mineral-tinged aromas of pink grapefruit, green apple, nectarine and chamomile, with a gingery topnote gaining strength with aeration. Palate-staining citrus and orchard fruit flavors show very good clarity and power, with a hint o ...Read More »

2014 By Farr Chardonnay Moorabool Valley Geelong Victoria (Previously $65)

96 points James Suckling: "Impressive concentration and complexity. All shades of peach fruits, banana, cinnamon, flinty chalky notes, honey and almond nougat. The palate's smooth and succulent; there's well-paced acidity firing rich, flavorsome grapefruit and white peach fruit flavors along. Really holds the finish with impressive pithy power; great wine. Drink now." K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "The trademark characteristics of the wine produced on our site are understated power and length with a mineral finish. The wine has a great fruit expression that is well integrated with French oak. ... Read More »

2013 Glaetzer-Dixon "Überblanc" Riesling Tasmania

96 points James Suckling: "An eerily Germanic accent to the nose of this wine (just as you get from the name), this has a fascinating fragrance to it with deep and ripe fruit aromas of nectarine, peach and baked yellow apple, plenty of spice, yellow and white flowers too. It sharpens aromatically with air, turning more citrusy and tight. The soft texture of this riesling really caresses the palate, smooth and even; it makes a hint at sweetness and yet has immense clarity and pared back zesty appeal. This is packed with rich lime fruit flavor. A clever wine from the pristine island ...Read More »

2012 Moorooduc Estate Chardonnay Mornington Peninsula

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chardonnay has a youthful nose of white peaches, grapefruit and tangerine peel with hints of toast and struck match. Medium-bodied with a lovely silkiness to texture, has oodles of citrus, stone fruit and savory flavor layers and a long finish." (6/2016) 92 points James Halliday: "Whole bunch-pressed, and taken straight to barrel without settling for a wild yeast fermentation and mlf. Seamless fruit and oak integration, the flavours of peach, nectarine, fig and apple, with some creamy/nutty nuances." (2/2014)

2013 Plantagenet Chardonnay Mount Barker Western Australia (Elsewhere $20)

95 points James Halliday: "Estate-grown, wild yeast-fermented in French barriques with extended lees contact. Full of character and vitality; grapefruit and white peach figure skate with each other, the line perfect, the length admirable thanks in no small measure to minerally acidity." (6/2014) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chardonnay opens to a peachy, tropical fruit nose with underlying notes of cedar, toast, butterscotch and roasted cashews. Medium-bodied, it has a pleasant creamy texture and good amount of stone fruit and tropical flavors before finishing with persistent, honey-toast notes. (LPB) ...Read More »

2015 Kooyong "Clonale" Chardonnay Mornington Peninsula Victoria

95 points James Halliday: "**Special Value Selection** About as delicious as chardonnay gets. Beautiful white peach-and-pear fruit, pure and sunny, angles slowly down to a sustained, toasty, mealy finish. A joy to drink." (7/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Clonale Chardonnay gives a ginger and warm peach nose with nuances of cinnamon toast, orange blossoms and honeysuckle. Light-bodied and wonderfully delicate on the palate, it has great flavour intensity and oodles of freshness, finishing with very good length."

2012 Leeuwin "Art Series" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $90)

97 points James Halliday: ""If price wasn't a concern we'd all just want to drink bucket loads of this. It's all class and quality but the drinkability factor is extremely high. It's like sitting with someone expert in the art of conversation; it makes you laugh and cry and lean in closer. Fruit, oak, texture, acidity, length: a hand full of aces, neatly arranged, trim and terrific."" 96 points Decanter: "Great to see Margaret River’s most recognized Chardonnay in such good form. This has all the power one associates with Leeuwin – with the 100% new oak being totally absorbed by the fruit – while the pa ...Read More »

2011 Cullen "Kevin John" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia (Biodynamic)

98 points James Halliday: "Made according to the biodynamic calendar from vine to glass. Estate-grown 36-year-old vines were whole bunch-pressed and wild yeast-fermented in French oak (one-third new). Has the usual Cullen magic, pitting very complex fruit against fine, taut acidity, yet making it appear the two were made for each other; the length of the wine is prodigious, its finesse equally extraordinary. Reached towards the end of a 100-wine tasting, I found myself retasting it when I didn't need to do so, and even committing the mortal tasting sin of swallowing some." (3/2014) ...Read More »

2015 S.C. Pannell Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked and sorted, free-run juice cool-fermented in tank. There is a subliminal savoury edge to the bouquet and palate, possibly from more than one yeast at work, and also to crisp, crunchy acidity. You pick up the extra level of flavour from ripe (not overripe) fruit on the back-palate and finish. Has the X-factor many Sauvignon Blancs lack." (9/2015) K&L Notes: Having S.C. Pannell as a K&L exclusive import is like having the national monopoly on Opus One. Steve Pannell is one of the most highly regarded and awarded winemakers in Australian history. Pannell ha...
