Composed and long, the palate is briefed with a delicious flavour profile of white peach, nectarine and citrus fruits which are underscored by dried honey, nougat and subtle bees wax characters.

    A Portuguese grape that doesn’t mind a bit of heat, and still stays fresh. Likely a taste of things to come.
    Distinctly saline with some chamomile perfume, crushed lemon pulp lends tang and subtle bitterness, some umami miso, nori and chicken flavour, fine chalk dust texture, preserved lemon, and heaps of crushed lemon and grapefruit on a tangy finish of good length. Very different, lots of texture, savoury, yet refreshing. Drink 2021-2025.

    Lots of zest appeal here, taking off with all manner of citrus flavours and lemon blossom florals too. There's texture with some lees influence imparting grilled nuts and creamy curd. A shapely wine with soft acidity gently leading it to the finishing line. Drink by 2026.

    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. Drink 2023-2027+

    I love how dry this feels, how it crackles with spice, how the sparks seem to fly as it trips through your mouth. It’s impeccable Pinot Gris, hay-like, spicy, dosed with just-enough fruit, savoury and engaging. It’s fantastic value, no problems, for sure. Drink 2022-2024.

    Merricks Estate was one of the first commercial vineyards on the Mornington Peninsula being planted in 1978. Seeking additional complexity the Merricks Estate Chardonnay is produced from two parcels of fruit that are picked on different dates and fermented separately before being blended together. The first batch was picked 10 days earlier, fermented with wild yeast and went through its malo naturally. The second batch was picked at a higher sugar levels and the juice had skin contact before being inoculated with yeast and subsequently induced Malo. Oak treatment was the same for both batches.

    Juxtaposing the old with the new, this is a rich, opulent style of Chardonnay framed by fresh acidity.

    Brilliant pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Nosing offers up an intense aromatic profile of white peach, ripe nectarine and creme brulee scents which intermingle with hints of honeycomb, subtle butterscotch and spice. Rich, creamy and generously weighed the palate is awash with opulent ripe peach, honeycomb and crème brulee flavours. Some butterscotch, cashew and spicy nougat characters adding a background complexity. Finishes with good freshness and a long silky textured aftertaste.

    This aged-release 2015 has developed toasty lemon and lime-peel aromas, as well as a vividly fresh palate that has teflon-like restraint and purity. A late developer, this has scintillating length and drive. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

    A cool January produced an ideal balance of flavour and natural acidity. A fantastically youthful and dynamic 6yo riesling, upholding a vibrant, youthful, pale straw-green hue. Lime, lemon and Granny Smith apple have but begun their evolution to almond meal, spice and honey. Crystalline acidity sustains impressive line, persistence and energy. One of the greats for the cellar. Drink by 2032.

    Established in 1972 by the late David Wynn, Mountadam is one of Australia’s oldest cool climate Chardonnay vineyards. Situated on a unique rocky outcrop at 570 metres above sea level, Mountadam is still to this day one of Australia's most elevated vineyards. Since 2005, the vineyard has been owned by South Australian businessman David Brown, who has made significant investment in vineyard improvement and expansion.
    Sourced from vines aged between 25-45 years old the juice was fermented in 50% new French oak barriques and 50% 1 and 2 year old barriques. Maturation took place in the same oak regime for a period of 12 months with intermittent lees stirring taking place during this time.

    Rich, decadently creamy and powerful this is an outstanding Chardonnay with magnificent palate presence.

    Brilliant pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Intense white peach, ripe nectarine and dried honey aromas are interwoven with citrusy nougat, faint cashew and spice notes. Rich, full and powerful, white fleshy peach, ripe nectarine and dried honey flavours flood the mouth giving it a viscous feel. Underscoring the moreish fruit are elements of citrusy nougat, light cashew and traces of crème brulee. Concentrated and creamy, despite its decadence it finishes with ample freshness and a long driving aftertaste. Sophisticated and stylish this a superb Chardonnay from this under the radar producer.
