  1. Amen Break Chardonnay 2019
    Amen Break Chardonnay 2019
    Hailing from a small village in east of Australia called New Zealand the Clonal Brothers are Matt and Steve Harrop and together they are a lethal winemaking combination. Matt will be a familiar name to most as the long-time winemaking brains behind the Shadowfax wines and more recently the newly installed winemaker for Curly Flat. His easy-going nature belies a profound winemaking talent that combines an innate understanding of his craft with equal parts accessibility and intellectualism in his wines. Steve -who still operates out of NZ - also has a couple of decades of vineyard development and wine marketing behind him and his ability to root out the right parcel at the right price is legendary.

    This is stellar stuff. Lovely wiff of mealy-reduction and struck match open up to lifted, peach and apple tree fruits with a little mineral hint floating around. Nicely framed by oak that plays a supporting role never intruding but poking its head in here-and-there. The medium bodied body palate packs plenty of flavour in and there is great balance and nice, zipp acidity. PWS

  2. Snake and Herring Tough Love Chardonnay 2021
    Snake and Herring Tough Love Chardonnay 2021
    This offers so much flavour and chisel at this price point. Snake and Herring source fruit from up and down the west coast surrounding Margaret River. They're masters of making wines packed with enjoyment and drive. This chardonnay is a  blend of Margaret River and Great Southern fruit,  it's laden with grapefruit, nectarine and sea spray tones. It carries so much flavour on a nervy wave of acidity and fine pithy phenolics. A refreshing yet complexing drop that over-delivers on quality. PWS

  3. Oakridge LVS Willow Lake Chardonnay 2018 375ml
    Oakridge LVS Willow Lake Chardonnay 2018 375ml

    Winemaker and CEO David Bicknell has proved his worth time and again as an extremely talented winemaker. JAMES HALLIDAY

    What is there to say about this superb Yarra Valley winery. Headed up by Dave Bicknell it feels like they can do no wrong. Everything they make from top to bottom is deftly put together and sourced from the Yarra's best vineyards. The quality is always outstanding and the LVS (local vineyard series) is some of the best value Pinot and Chardonnay around. PWS

    I’ve probably said it before, and anyone who knows me knows I’m prone to repeating myself, but what a lovely evocative name it is for a vineyard.

    It doesn’t need any styling products; there’s not a hair out of place here. White peach and lime, green melon, almond nougat, a whisper of struck match and spice. Smooth and flavoursome, a subtle viscosity interlaid with chalk and flint, some floral mouth-perfume, slight tweak to the finish with citrus rind and grapefruit tang. Right proper Chardonnay here.

  4. Correfox Cava Brut Rose NV
    Correfox Cava Brut Rose NV

    Made from Trepat, Monastrell and Garnacha grown in the sub region of Penedes called Villafranca del Penedes - the town at the heart of Cava production. It is a third generation, 100 year old, family-owned business whose almost entire focus is sparkling wine made in the traditional method.

    Hand-harvested grapes from their own vineyards.The red grapes macerate on skins for two to three hours and only the free run juice is used. Each grape variety produces a base wine which is made separately in steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The wine spends 9 months on lees before bottling and undergoes its second fermentation in the bottle.

    Wonderful and lifted red fruits and strawberry with an underlying earthy note. Nice fine bubbles and some lovely mide-palate fruit rounds out the crips and dry moutfeel. Nice crunch on the finish but persitant and plenty of flavour that carries through. An unusual style for Cava but done really well!

  5. De Bortoli Tumbarumba Chardonnay 2019
    De Bortoli Tumbarumba Chardonnay 2019

    De Bortoli offers some of the most interesting and best value drinking in the country at the moment. Their commitment to quality at all levels is really incredible and the fact that they manage to do this over such a large range and with such a diverse suite of wine style and varietals is unbelieveable. PWS

    From the Minutello Vineyard planted '81. The sheer quality of the fruit - and its clearly articulated varietal character - leaves no room for argument: this is priced well below its value. The flavours are ripe even though framed by pink grapefruit, green apple and white peach. Oak? Don't know/don't care. JAMES HALLIDAY

  6. Roche de Bellene Bellenos Blanc 2018
    Roche de Bellene Bellenos Blanc 2018
    The Bellenos range sit under the newly created Coteaux Bougignons (Hillside Burgundy) appellation. This new appellation was created was created in 2011 to allow producers in the region more freedom to blend wines, among varieties and throughout a larger designated area. It is designed to promote Burgundy that is of real quality but perhaps fits outside the traditional constraints of AOC regulations. It extends from Cote d’or in the north to Beaujolais in the south.

    The blanc is a blend of mainly chardonnay sourced from a cluster of southern Burgundy and northern Beaujolais sites. A touch of aligoté is also blended in to provide a little extra zip and vigour to the wine. Fermentation is all done in stainless steel tank with about 8 months in larger old barrels and aging on fine lees to provide a little extra texture and weight. PWS

  7. Lone Star Creek Vineyard Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2020
    Lone Star Creek Vineyard Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2020

    Upper Yarra Chardonnay. Single vineyard. Made by Franco D’Anna. I’m always surprised – in the best of ways – when I see the price of this.

    It’s racy in style but it has the texture, complexity and length to pull it off. It tastes of lemon curd and sprays of fragrant herbs, though nectarine and cedar push through too. I don’t overtly see flint here but it’s suggestive of it; it’s a vibe thing. There’s also a mineral water note, amongst it all, which works beautifully. We are now a couple of years from this wine’s vintage but it still feels as though it’s a couple of years from really being ready to drink at its best, though of course there’s enjoyment to be had now. Value once again is very high. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, Wine Front

  8. Prince Estivac Blanc de Blanc NV
    Prince Estivac Blanc de Blanc NV
    While there is no doubt Alsace is well known for its aromatic white varietals it is probably not as well known as the steward of great sparkling. Well, this little drop will change your mind. This doesn't try to be Champagne and it's all the better for it. The aim is to produce a clean, fun and delicious sparkling that nods to its home in Alsace but overdelivers in quality, and it has that in spades!

    This is sensational value, made from Pinot Blanc and Riesling in a traditional method. Nashi pear and green apple with hints of lime. Cumquat, apple, zesty citrus lead in the mouth to a long finish. Excellent little wine and you would be just as happy popping this for a toast as you would cracking it at a BBQ to get the party started.

  9. Mount Macleod Chardonnay 2021
    Mount Macleod Chardonnay 2021
    A sloping, south-facing Chardonnay block. Each batch is pressed and lightly settled before being racked to used barrels with plenty of solids. Wild-fermented, then raised un-sulphured on its lees for 20 months in neutral wooden barrels which have previously housed the Caledonia Australis Chardonnay. Both primary and malolactic fermentation occur naturally, though every effort is given to ensure these fermentations occur quickly to capture freshness and the maximum personality of the fruit.

  10. Honky Chateau Ikigai Chardonnay 2021
    Honky Chateau Ikigai Chardonnay 2021
    This by somm Chris Ryan of Cummulus Inc so you know he know what good booze is supposed to look like. All from a single vineyard in Healesville handpicked, crushed and pressed to all old 300l barrels. All wild ferment and just a couple of barrels that kicked on through to natural malo and kept for a bit of extra depth. Keen and minimal winemaking - we love it!

    Lush, soft and juicy, tropical leaning chardonnay with a really good dose of sweet spice. Slurpy, yummo kinda vibe. Not changing the world but this thing is delicious. Delivers a really good hit of chardy. MIKE BENNIE, The Wine Front

  11. Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay 2018 375ml
    Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay 2018 375ml

    Shaw + Smith M3 Chardonnay is a wine of note. It’s a wine with a view, as in we all have one of it. It’s come a long way over the years.

    I like my flint and funk but when I first opened this it was alarming. It was a matchbox factory. Some chardonnays need a decant and a wait. Give this time and it shows both power and poise, its grapefruit, custard apple and stone fruit flavours woven expertly with cedar, oatmeal, almond milk and matches. It has a quartz-like aspect, a bristle to its brilliance. It’s narrow but it’s not lean; there’s more than enough power to its fruit. It should drink quite sensationally, from appropriate glassware, in another 2-4 years. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

  12. Murdoch Hill Chardonnay 2021
    Murdoch Hill Chardonnay 2021

    If you haven't guessed it by now we are big fans of Murdoch Hill under and winemaker Michael Downer. Michael formally trained as a winemaker at Adelaide University with stints in wine regions of the world and harvest experience in Adelaide Hills, Barolo, Italy, Great Western, Victoria. Then came home to lead the winemaking at Murdoch Hill. Freshness and vibranct is the game here and he nails it!

    This is from the highly anticipated 2021 vintage sourced from a selection of vineyards in the Adelaide hills. Vintage 2021, some say is a vintage of a lifetime so get in on this. The wine displays the usual elegance and restraint we are used to seeing from Murdoch Hills. Always laced with subtle complexity from barrel fermentation and the region’s hallmark bright fruit flavours it screams quality from the get-go. A core of citrus, green apple, and grapefruit drives the palate, supported by lively acidity and structure. Great concentration and fruit with a buoyant and cheerful demeanour.

  13. Eloquesta Mudgee Cotto 2017
    Eloquesta Mudgee Cotto 2017
    Our Sydney PWS Manager, Andrew has chosen this for his 2021 Staff Pick:

    Take Chardonnay grapes from a highly awarded hillside block in Mudgee, press off into new and old French and Hungarian oak hogsheads and leave outside for 3 years on lees through all weather (under cover of course) and what do you get? A deliciously rich and deeply golden coloured Chardonnay that is as rich on the mid palate as it is dry and fresh on the finish. Dried apricots on the nose follow through with deep tangerine citrus and butterscotch to a fresh, dry finish. Think Jura spliced into Jerez.  I love this wine because its different, it’s quirky, but mostly because it’s delicious. ANDREW GEDDES, PWS

  14. Sentio Beechworth Blanc 2018
    Sentio Beechworth Blanc 2018

    Chris Catlow established Sentio wines in Beechworth in 2013 after seven vintages on the Mornington Peninsula with Kooyong Estate, Portsea Estate and Paringa Estate. Sandro Mosele was one of a handful of mentors driving Chris Catlow in his early years. Chris' passion is for Chardonnay, starting with his teenage years helping Barry Morey at Sorrenberg, another mentor who inspired Chris to complete a double degree in Viticultural Science and Wine Science, setting him up for a bright future in wine.

    Mostly chard (85%), Savagnin both barrel fermented with a touch of Arneis and Gruner making up the last 5%.

    Chris' winemaking philosophy is to let the site express itself, using a basket press to get maximum control out of this process and to oxidatively handle the juice. Wild yeast fermentation takes place 'on solids', in barrel and the wines spend time on lees. Chris only uses one French Cooper (Chassin), keeping the wines in 15% new barrels for 10 months and has a very strict 'no malo' policy. PWS

  15. William Fevre Chablis 2019 375ml
    William Fevre Chablis 2019 375ml

    A sleeper of the vintage, Fèvre's 2019 Chablis Village opens in the glass with notes of citrus oil, white flowers, crisp green apple and oyster shell. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and chiseled, it's taut and concentrated, with racy acids and a long, chalky finish. Produced from some 40 hectares of vineyards, averaging around 50 years old, this was cropped at yields of 43 hectoliters per hectare. Unusually intense and structured, readers willing to give this cuvée a bit of bottle age will be rewarded. WILLIAM KELLEY, Wine Advocate

    From 50 year old vines, with a yield of 46 hl/ha in 2019. Pale lime green. The Domaine version of William Fèvre Chablis offers a classical nose, leaner than, some, yet with intensity on the palate., some of the iodine character is present, but strong fresh citrus fruit too. Exceptional length. Lemongrass acidity. JASPER MORRIS MW

    This is aromatically similar to the Champs Royaux with a slightly more pronounced mineral reduction character. There is however better density and intensity to the focused yet opulent medium-bodied flavors that exhibit impressive power for a villages level wine… BURGHOUND

  16. Byrne Farm Chardonnay 2019
    Byrne Farm Chardonnay 2019
    Certified organic. The Chardonnay is sourced from three plots within the Balmoral block at Nashdale, with volcanic, chocolate ferrosol soils at 880 meters on the northeast-facing slope of Mount Canobolas. At almost 30 years old, these are some of the oldest vines in the region.
    Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed to French oak puncheons (500L) for primary fermentation. 50% low impact new oak-a very tight-grain. No  malo and nine months in oak with monthly bâtonnage, the barrels were blended.
