Beechworth Chardonnay 2012

Pale to medium lemon in colour. Immediate impressions- Oaky, Leesy, white peach, hazelnut - profound aromatics. A medium to full bodied palate with these same peachy leesy nutty flavours - a little broad - medium minus acid. Savaterre from Beechworth is near Giaconda, who many wine professionals in Australia, think make the best Chardonnay in Australia. The label on this Savaterre recommends decanting which I didn’t do. Rarely decant whites. — 25 days ago

Pinot Noir 2000

The colour especially the deep saturation is amazing for a 15yo wine... A Pinot from Australia for that matter! Initial sniffs are redolent of dark prunes then fresh stem which is quite pleasant. The sweet and tart juxtaposes for your attention as the acid line is as undecided as you are. — 5 years 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☺️☺️

Warner Vineyard Shiraz

Simply magnificent. Layers and layers of nuanced spicy earthy flavors. Blew away my European guest. No Aussie fruit bomb this one, can stand toe to toe with the best Northern Rhône has to offer. — 6 months 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. — 4 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.
