  1. 22 Degrees Kaleidoscope of Mayhem Halo White 2020
    22 Degrees Kaleidoscope of Mayhem Halo White 2020
    A relatively new label of Ashley Ratcliff of Ricca Terra, bringing together familiar varieties with new, climate adaptive planting. We are big fans of what he is doing and big fans of this style of white particuarly with warmer weather creeping in. This a the perfect blend of zip and punch with plenty of character and so easy to down.

    Blend here is Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Vermentino and Zibbibo.  A fun, leap-from-the-glass style, Sauvignon's tropical fruits meet the unmistakably grapey qualities of Zibbibo, a summer fruit salad of flavours.  Juicy and gluggable, though under its overt appeal there's some interest, focus and proper complexity.

  2. 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

  3. Baron Leopold Bordeaux Blanc 2018
    Baron Leopold Bordeaux Blanc 2018
    A new producer in the market that has just nailed it for entry level Bordeaux that actually taste like Bordeaux! Blended from vineyards across the appellation this is a superb introduction to the Bordeaux style, delivering a classic expression of the region and delicious to boot.

    Raised in tank and aged on fine lees, an abundance of savoury, grassy grapefruit, tangy and beautifully balanced.Lifted tropical fruit, lime and green apple with subtle herbaceous grassy end notes. Light, fresh and dry the palate with a touch of textural slip that carries it through the zingy close. PWS

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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

  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. 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.

  11. Domaine du Salvard Unique Sauvignon Blanc 2020
    Domaine du Salvard Unique Sauvignon Blanc 2020
    Previously labelled 'Unique' Sauvignon Blanc. With a new name and spanking new label designed by the talented French-based artist Louise Sheeran, the package here now reflects the quality of the wine inside. Cropped from mature vines rooted in the sandy clay soils of Cheverny's Fougères sur Bièvre, Blanc de Salvard is 100% Sauvignon Blanc raised on lees without any oak. The Delaille brothers' 2020 is another succulent and vibrant white, packed with aromas and flavours of pithy citrus, and shot through with smoky, resinous freshness and mouth-watering acidity. Classic Vin de Soif Loire.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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
