Slow Fox Wines Chardonnay 2021


2021 was also a wet and cold year in Mudgee but this Chardonnay bounds along with greater energy and presence than its 2022 sibling. 

Slow Fox Wines Chardonnay 2022


From a wet and cold vintage, this Slow Fox Wines Chardonnay is a tidy drink.

Montalto The Eleven Chardonnay 2022


I loved the Tuerong deluxe but this Eleven is not far behind. Packed with interest and drive, I'm sharing this with no one. Another excellent Chardonnay from Montalto.

The best Chardonnay on the Mornington Peninsula? Gee, it would be on the podium, that's for sure. This Tuerong from Montalto just keeps dishing up the goods time and again. Go here and indulge in the magic.

Winmark Single Vineyard Reserve Chardonnay 2021


Deliciously attractive, this is Hunter Valley Chardonnay in peak form. A superb wine from Winmark that will only continue to develop with some bottle age.

Winmark Icon 72 Chardonnay 2021


Named after the vines planted in 1972, Winmark is quite a beautiful vineyard in the Hunter Valley sub-region of Broke. A brand entirely devoted to Chardonnay (rejoice!), it has certainly made its mark after a few years.

If you like your Chardonnay with some oak, this is waiting for you with open arms. Generously layered with a persistent finish, there is a lot going on.

Burton McMahon George's Vineyard Chardonnay 2022


The wines in the Burton McMahon range are in a sweet spot right now. A label worth following, this George's Vineyard Chardonnay is generous but impeccably weighted. Winning!

Reflecting Light White Feather Chardonnay 2022


This Reflecting Light Chardonnay from the Macedon Ranges is a beautiful love story in a bottle. Chablis-esque, it's hard not to adore its shape and presence.

Flametree Chardonnay 2022


Flametree produces quality wines and this Chardonnay is the best release in this range that I have seen for a number of years. Well priced at $30, you'll be able to track it down for a little less. And you should track it down, it's a great drink.

Winmark Wines Expressions Chardonnay 2021


The Winmark Wines Expressions Chardonnay is a blend of five blocks from a total of seven onsite. Each block is picked and fermented separately with French oak playing a small role. It's quite a beautiful drink.

Winmark Wines Rusty's Run 2022


Winmark Wines have landed with a bang since taking over the old Poole's Rock vineyard in 2016. After bottling their first wines in 2018, they just took out the award for Cellar Door of the Year at the Hunter Valley Legends Awards in 2023. Located in the Hunter Valley subregion of Broke Fordwich, they specialise in Chardonnay. This Rusty's Run is an expression of 'new world' Chardonnay and it hits the mark.

Hesketh Lobethal Chardonnay 2022


Always a reliable wine in the Hesketh portfolio, this Adelaide Hills Chardonnay ticks the boxes.

Montalto Estate Chardonnay 2022

If lean and pristine is your go-to Chardonnay, this is probably not your bag. The depth and sophistication are captivating, although it must be said, this is not big and bulky. Winemaker Simon Black again shows his prowess and ethereal handling.

Escarpment Pahi Pinot Noir 2021


From Escarpment's Cobble Stone Vineyard comes this Pahi Pinot Noir. Comprised of four clones, it's tense and will benefit from some bottle age.
