2013 Amelia Park Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia

96 points James Halliday: "*"Special Value Selection" and a "Wow Factor Wine" of 2015* - Jeremy Gordon has a light touch in making chardonnay, the wine with freshness and balance the keys to its personality, enhancing, rather than inhibiting, its varietal expression. Oak has simply been a tool allowing the focus to fix onto the seamless blend of white peach, melon and grapefruit and its blue sky finish. - Top 10 Margaret River Chardonnay" (3/2015) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "A fragrant bouquet of grapefruit,melon and pear with notes of nuttiness and flinty characters. The palate is soft and... Read More »

2014 Oakridge "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 »

2012 Oakridge Estate 864 Single Block "Willowlake Vineyard Block A6" Chardonnay Yarra Valley Victoria (Previously $50)

98 points James Suckling: "This is a scintillating wine that fuses concentrated fruit presence and power with assertive structure and bracing acid drive. The nose has chalky notes with fresh hazelnut and a flinty, attractive reductive edge, plus stone fruits and citrus intermingled. The palate has commanding weight, neatly crafted shape and impressive length, with winding white peach and an array of citrus fruit flavors long into the finish. Enlivening, modern Aussie Chardonnay at its finest." (2/2015) 97 points James Halliday: "An exceptionally complex Chardonnay both in terms of texture and flavour; hand-pi ...Read More »

2013 Oakridge Single Vineyard Series "Guerin Vineyard" Chardonnay Yarra Valley (Elsewhere $30)

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 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."

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 Marchand Burch Chardonnay Porongurup Western Australia (Biodynamic) (Elsewhere $50+)

96 points James Halliday: "Bright straw-green; hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, wild yeast-fermented in French oak; the result is a resplendently complex chardonnay with white stone fruit, creamy cashew and bright acidity forming a circle of continuous flavours." (9/2014)

2014 Sons of Eden "Freya" Riesling Eden Valley South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "Elegance is its middle name but there's still a good core of limey fruit. It's a dry, structural style but its moreishness is right up there. Apple blossom and talc flavours aid this impression, as does a line of mouthwatering acidity. It's build to age, arguably, but as a young wine it's delicious." K&L Notes: "Freya" was the foremost goddess of ancient Germanic lands where the Riesling grape originated. This wine honours early German settlers who cultivated the first Riesling vine in the exemplary microclimate of the Barossa’s Eden Valley. Winemaker's Notes: "Aroma... Read More »

2013 Cullen "Ephraim Clarke" Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Margaret River Western Australia (Biodynamic) (Elsewhere $40)

97 points James Halliday: "A 71/29% blend, wild yeast-fermented, with no acid additions; 87% of the wine was matured for 5 months in French barriques (62% new). Follows in a long and proud tradition of exceptionally complex wines that rely on gentle persuasion, not brute force or, if you prefer, seduction rather than rape. The flavours are so attractive and mouthfilling now, it is easy to forget the wine will mature with grace for well over a decade." (3/2014) K&L Notes: Stunning Bordeaux style wine blend with so much concentration, flavor and drive. Truly great wine worthy of any cellar. Very... Read More »

2014 Howard Park Chardonnay Western Australia

97 points James Halliday: "From the estate vineyards in Mount Barker, Porongurup and Margaret River; hand-picked, and chilled overnight before hand sorted, whole bunch-pressed direct to barrel (30% new French) for wild fermentation, matured on lees for 9 months, part with mlf. Iron fist in a velvet glove, more common with red wines than chardonnay, but this has awesome power, concentration and length to its pink grapefruit, white stone fruit and pistachio, nougat accents from the mlf."

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 Leeuwin "Art Series" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia

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 »

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 »

2013 Glaetzer-Dixon Family Wines "Uberblanc" 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 »

2014 Andrew Thomas "Braemore" Sémillon Hunter Valley

97 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked with 'fishing headlamps' between 2am and 9am, enabling whole bunch pressing of cool fruit. Herb, grass, lime and lemon aromas and flavours whirl through the bouquet and superbly balanced palate alike, with lemon zest acidity cleansing and lengthening the finish and aftertaste."

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 »

2013 Giant Steps "Tarraford Vineyard" Chardonnay Yarra Valley Victoria

93 points Vinous: "Pale gold. Highly perfumed aromas of fresh orchard fruits, tangerine, white flowers and smoky minerals are complemented by a deeper hint of toasty lees. From a relatively warm vineyard but shows plenty of energy, offering juicy pear and citrus fruit flavors and a touch of shiso leaf. Finishes nervy and long, with resonating spiciness and excellent focus. (JR)" (7/2014) 93 points Wine & Spirits: "From its supple texture to its length of flavor, this takes chardonnay in the direction of chamomile and fresh lemon cream. Pale floral notes and a gentle, nutty finish quiet the wine’s powe ...Read More »

2013 Leeuwin "Prelude" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia

94 points James Halliday: "Freshness and flavour. The two need not be mutually exclusive. This shows spicy oak laced through pear and grapefruit, dripping with juice. It's immediately appealing and seductive yet it has reach and drive. Incredibly more-ish." (12/2014) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Broad and expressive, with pear, quince and white peach flavors gliding effortlessly into the long and refined finish." (8/2015)

2010 All Saints Estate Marsanne Rutherglen Victoria

91 points James Halliday: "The bouquet of this wine is textbook straw, honeycomb and anise; the palate is vibrant, fresh and focused, with tangy acidity providing line and length; the textural component raises interesting opportunities for food and wine matching." (3/2012) Wine Spectator: "Fresh and distinctive, with creamy pear and lime flavors, finishing with a light touch. Drink now through 2015. (Web-2013)" K&L Notes: This historic, family-owned winery, ideally situated along the banks of the Murray River in Wahgunyah, Victoria, dates back to 1864 when it was established as one of Australia's first wineries....

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 »

Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with lively melon and peachy flavors with a suggestion of creaminess to the texture and a good long finish. Drink it now to 2018. 90+ (LPB)" (8/2014)

2014 By Farr Chardonnay Moorabool Valley Geelong New!
2014 By Farr Chardonnay Moorabool Valley Geelong

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. The soil characteristics have come through in the style of wine we have today. The palate is fine but firm, with great acidity, texture and length. This wine is rich in flavour, yet very refined. The By Farr chardonnay comes from the same site as the Sangreal pinot noir, composed of red soil over limestone, and was planted in 1994. The lime... Read More »
