Beechworth Chardonnay 2016

No formal notes. From Beechworth in north eastern Victoria in the foothills of the alps and a neighbour of Giaconda who make one of the best Chardonnays in Australia. A very good cool climate Chardy with citrus and grapefruit notes - some flint. Served on Emirates First Class. A touch of well balanced French Oak. — a month ago

Domenica (Beechworth)

Shiraz 2014

Very expressive nose - loads of sophisticated, restrained but quietly rich black fruit, with some black pepper and cigar box. Beautiful mouthfeel. Silky. Palate starts off sweet but then evolved with some spice. No more than medium bodied but great persistence and very long. Needs a few years to integrate more and fill out a bit but sublime balance and individual components auger very well for the future. Giaconda Warner vineyard at half the price. — 5 years ago


Warner Vineyard Shiraz 2010

One of the most profound wines I've tasted in ages. Sophisticated youth. Delivers richness without overt weight. Absolutely sensational wine. My first 100 score ever. — 6 years ago

Estate Vineyard Chardonnay

This is full of energy and almost electric. Green apple peel, stone fruit, ginger, cashew, matchstick. Would really benefit from food. Unique. — 4 months ago

Alpine Valleys Chardonnay 2016

There are expensive chardys coming from Beechworth, but not all of them
The quality of the fruit is superb, well over the average of the country
Stylistically they use oak, but thanks to the flesh of the wines it is less prominent than what the classic oaked chardys were
In this case we have a little extraction of colour from the skins.
I like it, it has got a wonderful feel in my mouth
Beechworth is not only Giaconda. That's a good news☺️☺️

Beechworth Chardonnay 2017

Great intensity - nougat and white peach. A new producer for me but coming from Beechworth it is nearby to Giaconda who many believe makes the best Chardonnay in Australia or at least in the top 3. Light to medium weight but with profound intensity. Will seek out in the future. — 8 months ago

Sound wine... very sound... but not the life and excitement i was expecting. — 6 years ago

Leeuwin Estate

Art Series Margaret River Chardonnay 2007

Mid Lemon. A nose of citrus but a palate of stone fruit. White peach and cream. Palate staining intensity with great length. Oak is totally integrated into the fruit at 9 years. Used to be regarded as Australia's premier Chardonnay and probably still is depending on your style preference. Other Margaret River icons plus Giaconda , Oakridge and Bindi amongst others in the East also vying for the mantle. World class. Halliday once compared the 1987 to a premier Cru Puligny. — 7 years ago

@TheSkip I would imagine this should be available in the States. Mandatory buying for me every year. 2013 is current vintage. Always excellent.


I should get on this. $65usd
