Garagiste Merricks Chardonnay 2015

Regular Price: $45.00

Special Price: $42.50

As low as: $41.50

Australian chardonnay is in a great place; so too is the Garagiste range.


How powerful can a wine be before it loses its elegance? This tests the definition. It’s straw-coloured and powerfully flavoured and yet it floats and sings in harmony. It’s an elegant portrait of this wonderful white grape. It’s juicy with ripe nectarine and white peach, comes dripping with pear and fig, and cuts long with spicy, flinty, nutty goodness. There’s a rind-like character here, an extra bite to the flavour. It’s the icing on a gorgeous wine.

Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay 2013

Regular Price: $100.00

Special Price: $96.00

As low as: $94.99

Partial wild ferment, everything in barrel, maturation was 11 months in 100% new oak. Despite the vintage warmth this is the most contained Leeuwin I can remember, still green straw coloured and youthful. There is the classic nutty golden oak character of Leeuwin, though – like an oak sunrise. That sounds rude, but the barrel influence here is a big part of the recipe. The length, the power, the weight… all of it smells of absolute quality. Importantly, that oak doesn’t derail the flavour, and every mouthful is a smorgasbord of Chardonnay flavour. You can’t deny the glory of a wine like this – sure, the winemaking sits on top, but the latent glory is apparent. Big yes, but stick it in the cellar for a few years. Best drinking: 2018-2028. 18.5/20, 94/100+. 13.5%, $96. Would I buy it? Yes, even despite the price Andrew Graham Australian Wine Review

Leeuwin Estate Prelude Chardonnay 2014

Regular Price: $33.00

Special Price: $31.50

As low as: $30.00
Out of stock

"An elegant, vibrant and fragrant nose with lemon, lime and pear in the foreground. Notes of peach blossom and subtle jasmine create lift and combines with cardamom pod, almond meal and roasted cashew. The palate has immense purity, with power and persistence. Lime and lemon pith define the palate, which carries through to a delicately layered middle, threaded with a fine mineral spine. Sesame seed and blanched almonds enhance complexity, finishing with a sparkling acid structure. This wine has energy in its youth, and will build texture with cellaring." - Leeuwin Estate.

Out of Step Syme on Yarra Chardonnay 2014

Regular Price: $26.99

Special Price: $24.50

As low as: $22.00
Out of stock

Perhaps not as rich as the 2013, at least at this stage, but with wonderfully intense flavours, a crackling line of crisp acidity & some sulphide complexity it expresses both it’s provenance & (we feel) more than delivers to what we aspire – a wine that is both interesting & delicious.  


Rating 95 James Halliday
From a single block of P58 clone planted in '98; hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, wild yeast-fermented, full mlf, not fined or filtered, with no additions other than SO2; 75 dozen made. The bouquet is very complex, with some Burgundian funk, the palate intense, lively and long with a core of grapefruit and white peach. Its best years are still in front of it. 95 points James Halliday

Thistledown the Great Escape Chardonnay 2013

Regular Price: $22.99

Special Price: $21.50

As low as: $21.00

Eden Valley ... The Great Escape is our benchmark, cool climate Chardonnay produced from fruit grown in elevated vineyard sites which allow for a long ripening period which helps to maintain the natural sugar and acid balance of the grape. With moderate alcohol, focussed, crisp citrus fruit and a mouthwatering finish, this is an accomplished, truly modern style of this noble variety.

Kooyong Clonale Chardonnay 2015

Regular Price: $31.50

Special Price: $28.99

As low as: $28.00

"Not tried any Kooyong wines for a couple of years now. Always enjoy Clonale, which is something of a ‘go to’ wine for me when cruising the fridges of a bottle shop .... which pretty much scuppers my future Clonale cruising opportunities. Drats.


Lime, some yeasty funk, subtle stuck match and cedar spice. Light to medium bodied, chalky and tight, ripe citrus flavours and maybe a little nougat gloss, and savoury and milky with it too. Finish is long and satisfying. Love drinking this. I’m immediately taken with it, and don’t have to think too hard about the score. 
Super! "94 points Gary Walsh Winefront.com.au

Guilty By Association Preservative Free Tumbarumba Chardonnay 2015

Regular Price: $21.00

Special Price: $20.00

As low as: $19.00

Guilty By Association Chardonnay 2015 is generously flavoured with a creamy, slighty mealy texture and sings out "I'm a Tumbarumba chardonnay" with white peach, grapefruit, almonds and lemons. There's an unforced, effortless pace and an easy generosity of flavour. There's a slightly edgy tension which leads into a long finish. Given the minimal winemaking behind the scenes (preservative-free and vegan-friendly) it's a very polished wine that raises the bar for other PF wines.

Giant Steps Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2015

Regular Price: $34.99

Special Price: $33.99

As low as: $31.00

This is right in the slot. It’s lean and long, mostly, with grapefruit and citrus rind character drilling through to the flourish of the finish. Fuzzy peach and spiced wood characters are fringe players at most. It’s a highly disciplined chardonnay. It needs a year or two in bottle. Rated : 92 Points Winefront.com.au

Bleasdale Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2015

Regular Price: $21.99

Special Price: $20.50

As low as: $19.99

Rating 94 points - James Halliday's wine tasting note - Clones 76, 95 and Mendoza, wild yeast solids fermentation in French puncheons (25% new), partial mlf and 9 months maturation. Skilled winemaking has left the wine bright and crisp, not in sauvignon blanc territory; it is light-bodied, but white peach and grapefruit varietal flavours hold the floor, not oak or vanilla pod mlf. Will flower over the next 2-3 years.

Sidewood Estate Chardonnay 2015

Regular Price: $21.50

Special Price: $20.50

As low as: $19.99

Light straw in colour this wine displays lifted aromas of apricots and rockmelon. The palate oozes an opulent, mouth filling mid palate showing honeysuckle with a hint of lemon. This luscious, complex wine has wonderful acid balanced by an incredible softness. Drinking beautifully now and will continue to improve with cellaring over the next 5 years. Simply serve chilled on its own or enjoy as an outstanding accompaniment to creamy pastas, spiced infused chicken or with buttered mushrooms as a vegetarian option.

Innocent Bystander Chardonnay 2015

Regular Price: $24.50

Special Price: $23.50

As low as: $21.99

"Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, free-run juice wild-fermented in new and used French barriques, matured for 9 months. White peach blossom is first out of the blocks on the bouquet and the palate alike, then it gets interesting as other white fruits shimmy with grapefruit, almond kernel and cashew also craving attention. It is a chardonnay that floats airily over, not in, the glass. "

Delamere Estate Chardonnay 2015

Regular Price: $43.00

Special Price: $41.50

As low as: $39.99

Wild yeast, a touch of mlf, a powerful hit of fruit flavour and the length to consummate it. This is an excellent wine to spend time with. On a bright line of acidity are hung quality fruit and oak. 95 points Campbell Mattinson Wine Companion.
One sip and I was hooked. This is dangerously good. It’s the kind of chardonnay so many of us are looking for. Rich with flavour, sizzling with acidity, purring with length – and yet, all the while, harmonious. It’s complex without making a big deal of it.
The combination of fruit and oak here is simply beautiful."

Sidewood Chloe Cuvee Adelaide Hills 2013

Regular Price: $29.99

Special Price: $24.00

This is a serious style of sparkling with a straw, meringue bouquet, and a deep palate which betrays a hint of barrel ageing and packs a definite grip on the back palate. Its quite a powerful sparkling, and could easily handle hearty poultry appetisers. 92 points Gourmet Traveller Wines

The Lane Block 1 Chardonnay 2013

Regular Price: $21.50

Special Price: $20.00

As low as: $19.99

Oak is part of the seduction and there’s nothing wrong with that. This offers texture, flavour and length at a more than reasonable price. It tastes of melon, lactose, cream and white peach, and is 
both seductive and satisfying.  92 points Campbell Mattinson Winefront.com.au

Tyrrells Hunter Valley Shiraz 2013

Regular Price: $20.00

Special Price: $19.00

As low as: $17.99

Nice wine this – feels like essence of Hunter Valley Shiraz. Medium bodied with savoury tannins drawling through the wine. Offers up red fruits, dustiness but not too much, and light, washy acidity keeps things fresh. It might lack some stuffing but it’s pitch-perfect as an example of Hunter and drinkability with savouriness. Crunch and chew in the finish lends a hand.
Better than you think.  91 points Winefront.com.au

West Cape Howe Old School Chardonnay 2014

Deep straw colour, with a pale green hue. An intense combination of cashew, butter, honeycomb and stone fruit characters. Medium palate weight with a rich and creamy texture. Peach and nectarine fruit flavours are perfectly complimented by toasted nuts, honey and a persistent and flavoursome finish.

Wirra Wirra The 12th Man Chardonnay 2013

Regular Price: $30.99

Special Price: $29.50

.......The palate reveals lovely intensity of nectarine and citrus fruits with lemon curd and cedar. The wine is a complex balance between the fresh stone fruits, bright acid and wonderful creamy texture.
Wild yeast-fermented in French oak. Intense and incisive, the flavours racing along the palate with classic grapefruit opening the bouquet and closing the palate, white peach the wicket keeper.” – 94 Points James Halliday

Hoddles Creek 1er Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2014

Regular Price: $45.99

Special Price: $44.99

As low as: $44.50

From a cooler year, with no new oak used. No fining. No filtration or additions. White peach, almonds, brine and subtle struck match, honeyed florals even. Light to medium bodied, calm and composed, almost silky feel, sharpened up by a sweet lemon and stony acidity. Flows like picture of a waterfall taken with slow shutter speed. Cool. Refreshing. Focused. Bright. The length is exemplary too, gently nutty but pure and long.
Hard to slow down the drinking pace. 96 points Gary Walsh Winefront.com.au

Greywacke Chardonnay 2013

An intriguing brioche-like amalgam of roasted nuts, linseed and orange liquer. This is an exotic, intricate style that is rich and generous with ripe citrus and savoury wild yeast derived complexity. A concentrated wine with a tight, natural acid backbone and a long crisp finish.

Dexter Chardonnay 2014

Regular Price: $41.00

Special Price: $39.99

As low as: $38.00

Dexter Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay  is bright, pale lemon-gold, green tinged. Still a little shy to sniff, but there are hints of stone fruits. The palate is tightly contained by citrusy, grapefruity acidity, showing stone fruits, fig and its ripe and mouth-filling, held in balance by that refreshing acidity. Although there is 20% new oak, that component is background material along with suggestions of nutty, mealy complexity. This is a complex wine that wants more time; I’d suggest leaving it for another six to twelve months, from when it will repay amply that order of patience.

The colour of our 2015 Chardonnay is vibrant straw. The nose reveals classic primary characters of peach, pear and stonefruit combining with toasty French oak notes. The palate carries a core of stone fruits, cashew and spice, and finishes bright with excellent natural acidity."- Woodlands Wines.

Willow Bridge Wine Makers Range G1-10 Chardonnay 2013

Regular Price: $29.99

Special Price: $28.00

As low as: $27.50

White peach, almond, spice, cut fennel and preserved lemon. Fine boned, tight grapefruity acidity, gentle savoury and yoghurt flavours, flint and light glossiness. Good burst of flavour, though not too much of it: certainly leans on the more restrained side of the Chardonnay fence. Finish is long and really bursts out all lemony with a softening touch of almond paste.
Very good. Needs a year or two in bottle. 93 points Winefront.com.au

Castelli Estate Pemberton Chardonnay 2015

Regular Price: $27.99

Special Price: $27.00

As low as: $26.50

Full-bodied and full-flavoured. Lots of oak on offer here, spicy and cedary both, with grapefruit and fleshy yellow stone fruits to the fore. There’s a trace of funk and plenty of mouthfeel. It looks (colour-wise) reasonably advanced but other than it being a bigger style, it presents as fresh. It evolves well as it rests in the glass too. It all seems a bit too much at first but in the end, you’d have to say this performs pretty well.

Tyrrells Hunter Valley Chardonnay 2014

Regular Price: $20.00

Special Price: $19.00

As low as: $17.99

Peach, mixed citrus, gentle vanilla and cedar oak and some wheatgerm.Medium bodied, juicy fruit, but with some restraint,  limey acidity offset with a dab of cream and almond. Good length. Acid freshens the aftertaste, but does not twang. 
This is nicely done: meets the modern and traditional schools of Hunter Chardonnay in the middle playground.  90 points Winefront.com.au"


.....You can smell the perfect ripeness from first whiff, with banana oak and yeast characters over a surprisingly taut palate. It's not particularly complex, and there's a little warmth on the finish, but otherwise it's just a lovely Chard for anyone into the more medium bodied, mod-Hunter style.
For $20 this is Goldilocks Chardonnay.  Score: 17.7/20, 92/100
Would I buy it? Yes. This would be a shining star on an pub wine list. Andrew Graham Australian Wine Review
