2018 Helen's Hill "Ingram Road" Chardonnay Yarra Valley Victoria
Top Pick!
94 points James Halliday: "Selective-harvested, pressed to French puncheons (10% new) for primary (wild) ferment on solids, 20% mlf, 11 months in barrel with occasional batonnage. Fruit-driven, with good varietal expression (grapefruit, green apple) and bright acidity. The screwcap guarantees 5 years accumulation of complexity without loss of fruit freshness." (08/2019)

94 points James Halliday: "There's an extra dimension to the palate courtesy of partial barrel fermentation, serving to add to the grass, herb and passionfruit trio, citrussy acidity cleansing the finish. (JH)" (01/2019) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "From estate vineyards in Wallcliffe, this is mostly sauvignon blanc, allowed to spontaneously ferment in French oak barrels (mostly used), later blended with semillon that was fermented in tank with selected yeasts. It’s a cool and supple white, with scents of orange-blossom honey and pink grapefruit, tense a...

94 points James Halliday: "Multi-clone, wild-fermented in French oak (10% new), 10 months maturation. Generous and rich, with nectarine and white peach to the fore, neatly tightened on the finish by grapefruit/citrus acidity." (11/2017)

94 points James Suckling: "Another very exotic white from Yeringberg, which remains focused and dialed-in. Dried pineapple is the main attraction on the nose, as well as apple pastries, red grapefruit, passion fruit and praline. An acutely smoky undertone, too. Round and opulent on the palate, but it is still very much in check. This is all thanks to a refreshing layer of acidity through the mid-palate, carrying this long through the finish. " (06/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Hints of roasted cashew accent lemon-curd notes on the nos...

90 points Wine Spectator: "Distinctive and refreshing, featuring bright, crisp lemony flavors, with undercurrents of lanolin and saline. Offers a supple frame and an impressive finish. Drink now. 9,000 cases made, 300 cases imported." (12/2019)

2016 Leeuwin Estate "Art Series" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
Top Pick!
99 points James Halliday: "The perfumed perfection of the bouquet and the wonders of the palate, with its ever-shifting mosaic of white stone fruit, rock melon, grapefruit, Granny Smith apple and custard apple reign supreme. Oak? Yes, it's there, although subtle. Acidity? Yes, the giver of life now and into the future. " (11/2019) 98 points Bob Campbell: "Very light colour for its age and the bouquet is likewise fresh and young and unevolved. There are subtle grapefruit, spice and nougat aromas and the oak is taking a back-seat. The wine is still tight...

96 points Decanter: "Potent primary fruit, perfume and poise are the hallmarks of this long-lived classic - though thanks to earlier picking, less new oak and no malolactic, it has become sleeker. The expressive 2015 shows layers of heady oak, rock melon, dried pear, peach, pineapple, nougat and buttered popcorn. A relentless push of grapefruit acidity leavens and provides backbone and drive. (SA)" (03/2019) 96 points James Halliday: "Generous of flavour and texture, imparted by Leeuwin's stamp of extended skin contact, an approach that demands impecca...

2017 Xanadu Estate Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
New!
96 points Decanter: "Ethereal, intriguing nose of yellow fruits, wild flowers and citrus. Hints of wet stone and green apple on the palate, leading to a very long finish." (10/2019) 95 points James Halliday: "Contract-grown fruit is whole-bunch pressed and wild-fermented in French oak (25% new), lees-stirred, mlf prevented, matured for 9 months. Elegantly composed and balanced, with white peach, pear and citrus flavours spread across a lengthy canvas. An each way bet, now or later. Xanadu at work again." (08/2019) 95 points James Suckling: "Peach-cus...

These are a bunch of white varietals that aren’t ever found in the same region, so this wine explores the beauty of Australia’s sense of wine lawlessness. Chenin is for longevity meaning this wine will flourish in the cellar over the next ten years. Gewurztraminer literally translates into "spicy grape" and it adds both texture and spice to this wine. Gruner Veltliner is a textural component and supports the bottom end of the wine. And finally, Riesling, being solely pressings that went through both MLF and primary ferment in barrel adds a little touch o...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Art Series Chardonnay is tight but rich, with guava and pineapple fruit reined in by lemony accents. Yes, there's oak, but it's in the background to the concentrated fruit in this silky-textured, medium to full-bodied effort. Based on the superb concentration, length and an admirable track record, it should age well through at least 2030. " (01/2020) 93 points James Halliday: "Fermented in French barriques (40% new) and 9 months on lees with regular stirring. Fruit-driven bouquet with pear, citrus and...

90 points James Halliday: "From Wilyabrup, Karridale and Cowaramup, largely tank-fermented, no mlf, 20% new French oak. Bright straw-green; abundant flavour, primarily stone fruit. Plenty to chew on, and ready now." (11/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 20% new oak used to mature the 2016 Chardonnay is scarcely noticeable, as the nose instead reveals attractive hints of white peach and tangerine. It's medium-bodied, with a hint of creaminess on the palate; but with no malolactic fermentation, it turns a bit tart on the quick-fading, citrusy fin...

Jancis Robinson: " Less fruit on the nose than the Spring bottling, but superbly ripe citrus on the palate with honey, lemon zest and long floral notes. Steely tone too. (RH)" (01/2019) K&L Notes: Lisa Perrotti-Brown writes: "Winemaker Mac Forbes, formerly with Mount Mary, has now gone out on his own purchasing fruit from across Yarra Valley and crafting wines to his own unique style."

93 points James Halliday: "Wild yeast barrel fermentation gives a lift and a twist to the bouquet, with reductive notes that add to the interest of the wine, the palate driven by grapefruit and white peach, mirror-smooth in comparison to the bouquet. Will gain complexity without losing freshness for several years. " (08/2019) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "Xanadu’s least expensive chardonnay is two-thirds fermented in barrel, the balance in stainless steel. Only about five percent of the finished blend has seen new oak, and the wine is so fresh you might t...

James Halliday: "Early morning harvest, crushed, chilled, pressed. Bursting with lime juice and Granny Smith apple fruits." (08/2019) Wine & Spirits: "This is a project from Kaesler in Barossa, offering a rose-scented riesling with simple, spicy grape flavors. It’s touched by sweetness, reminding one taster of orange hard candies, while acidity keeps it balanced and clean. For aperitifs." (02/2019)

96 points James Halliday: "A wine that has ineffable precision to its make-up. It is impossible for it to do anything other than build on the supreme delicacy, balance and length it already has. Why impossible? It's the differing acidity that will never change. Trophy Clare Valley Wine Show '18." (08/2019) 92 points Decanter: "A quintessential Clare Valley Riesling: concentrated yet vibrant lime cordial, white blossom and fresh lime juice leap from the glass. Pristine and almost squeaky clean, it is thrilling to drink now but the racy acidity should en...

92 points James Halliday: "Sees no oak, but complexity is sought through staggered harvesting incorporating a combination of sites and trellising systems. Pure varietal aromas of citrus, lemongrass and freshly cut dry (not green) grass. Reasonably generous alcohol at 13.5% adds to the mouthfeel, with the flavours slightly reserved, but showing the promise of things to come. Terrific length." (10/2016) 90 points Vinous: "Green-tinged straw. Vibrant, sharply focused pear skin, lemongrass and honeysuckle scents and a dusty mineral overtone. Dry and focuse...

98 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, fermented in French oak barrels with limited stirring. The bouquet and palate send the same message of perfectly captured white stone fruits, then apple and grapefruit. An irresistible wine with spectacular length. " (11/2019) 98 points James Suckling: "An exceptional chardonnay with a wealth of very fresh and slightly flinty lemon, grapefruit, white-peach and grilled-hazelnut aromas. The palate has such grace and well-defined, pure lemon and grapefruit, as well as white and yellow peaches. ...

Praise from Joe Czerwinski in Wine Advocate: "Chicago-born Brad Hickey, a former NYC sommelier, came to South Australia in 2007 and has been here ever since. That's what happens when you fall in love with a local—and McLaren Vale is a pretty beautiful place in which to settle down. Hickey's built a reputation on the back of his use of amphorae, long macerations and innovative grape varieties and blends. You won't find many other Riesling-Sémillon blends, let alone ones that are co-fermented. While the ZBO and NDV helped put his Brash Higgins persona/bran...

91 points Wine Spectator: "Distinctive, with honey-drenched melon, floral and passionfruit accents that add a succulent side, but the core is crisp and clean, with refreshing acidity, the floral notes lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2029. (MW)" (03/2019) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Planted in 2000 in the Coal River Valley in Southern Tasmania, Nocton Vineyard sits on ancient layered soils of Jurassic black cracking clays over limestone. 2018 will probably go down as being a very generous year for Pinot Noir as most years in Tasmania tend ...
