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