Bannockburn manage some of the finest Chardonnay vines in Australia, dry grown and over thirty years of age. Techniques employed to vinify the superlative fruit follow the traditions of Burgundy, everything is done with thought and care, never compromising on quality. Organic practices and extended maceration before a fastidious barrel selection achieve a wine that's exciting and complex. Parcels of dry grown fruit are whole bunch pressed, without any settling or additions, into a mix of barriques, puncheons and fermenters, vinified through the action of wild indigenous yeasts and rested for two years on sedimentery lees. Structured and powerful, rich with Burgundy styled, soil derived crustacea characters.
 
Pale straw green hues. Complex nose displaying chalky minerality, almond meal, grapefruit pith and a creamy biscuit character derived from extended lees contact. The palate is very long with a lovely texture and weight. A hint of creaminess from some malo-lactic involvement. The palate is full without being broad, tight without being austere.
Bannockburn Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Geelong
Available by the dozen
French influences abound at Bannockburn, where Sauvignon Blanc draws inspiration from the Sancerre districts of Vallée de la Loire, the emphasis being on elegance and depth of flavour. The maritime influenced climes surrounding Bannockburn's vineyards make for cool and stable ripening, combined with unique soils, providing sensational conditions for growing excellent Sauvignon Blanc. A combination of vinification techniques are employed to construct a singularly engaging wine, it's definitely not another boring, grassy, single dimension style.

From fruit grown to two estate vineyard blocks, one bearing vines over twenty years of age, the other slightly younger, both are low yielding. Each site enjoys it's own mesoclimate, the most recent planting consisting of new French clones with greater vine density. Fruit is vinified through the action of indigenous yeasts, in a mix of seasoned and new, French oak and Italian acacia puncheons, followed by ten months on lees to enhance texture. A third of the Sauvignon Blanc is fermented on skins to achieve back of the palate grip and structure as well as flavour complexity. Small inclusions of Riesling or Chardonnay contribute subtle aromatic perfume, extra weight and body to the final wine.
 
Straw yellow hue, greenish tints. Complex nose, the classic mineral, cassis and Loire Valley gunflint characters. Fragrant honey and interesting smoky fume scents from the Italian Acacia puncheons. Good weight and texture on the middle palate before assertive acidity drives through the wine, providing excellent length and persistence. A savoury style with lots of texture, seriously Sauvignon Blanc.

Bass Phillip Estate Chardonnay 2013
Gippsland
The tranquil pasturelands of Gippsland share an affinity for Chardonnay with the timeless terroirs of La Bourgogne. Bass Phillip pioneered viticulture here, introducing the noblest of white grape in the 1980s. Phillip Jones maintains strictly controlled yields on his fastidiously husbanded Leongatha property, a costly regimen of pruning which permits less than a tonne and a half of fruit to the acre. The reward comes in the form of a buttery Montrachet style, brimming with grapefruits, bracing with crystal minerality and framed by a veneer of polished golden oak.

Renowned for its auspicious beef grazing and dairy farming, Gippsland was established to viticulture in 1979 when Phillip Jones planted his first vines on the Bass Phillip property at Leongatha. A confluence of deep mineral rich soils, cooler climes with higher humidity, deliver harvests of Chardonnay with intensely complex flavours, firm natural acidity and refined minerality. Fruit is all hand picked and treated to an extravagant regimen of Burgundian vinification techniques, lees stirring battonage and extended maturations in French coopered oak.
 
Straw yellow hues. Floral bouquet, melons and citrus, nutty cashew characters, hawthorn and lemon notes.

Composition Chardonnay is grown to a 1¬Ĺ hectare plot. Fastidious small vineyard management regimes are employed, hand pruning, frequent passes, at least ten for each vine, vertical shoot positioned canopies and hand harvesting. Composition is fermented in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barrels, some are inoculated with cultured yeast, others are vinified without any addition of yeasts. The fermented wine is lees stirred every week over winter and treated to a quarter of malolactic conversion. The wine is racked around eight months after vintage and returned to barrel for a further three months before bottling. Composition spends just under eleven months in barrel, ten on sedimentery lees.
 
Light straw gold colour. The nose is fine and quite complex, floral and gently spiced with a delicious mealy, pulp mineral Chardonnay fragrance. An intense, mineral wine fully ripe but lean, taught and intense with savory, creamy elements. The fruit complexities range through white peaches and nectarine, lemons, grapefruit and nashi pear. The palate is fresh and intense, walking the line of mouth filling textures combined with delicacy and finesse.
Blue Pyrenees Chardonnay 2013
Pyrenees
Available by the dozen
Chardonnay has been central to the Blue Pyrenees program, since the noble Maisons of Heidsieck and Krug settled on the Grampians, to create new world wines which could articulate the affinity between Victoria's western districts and the premier precincts of France. Ostensibly planted as the essential backbone for the finest sparkling, the brow raising matchstick style of incisive, contemplative Chardonnay, textural with delicately oaked peachyness, barrel ferment autolysis, persistent grapefuit piquancy and lingering mineral crispness.

It was in the early 1960s that the Pyrenees region became recognised for its potential, by virtue of a unique combination of deep gravely soils and cool climate conditions. Blue Pyrenees Estate is the coolest site within the Pyrenees region, with a diversity of microclimes enabling each clone to be planted in the best situation. Established 1963 as Ch√Ęteau Remy by the Champagne houses of Heidsieck and Krug, the Blue Pyrenees style has evolved into a unique wine that captures the perfect balance between new world technology and old world tradition. Following considerable development and experimentation, the inaugural release was in 1982, the rest as they say is history.
Brokenwood Indigo Vineyard Chardonnay 2014
Beechworth
Available in cases of 6
It was the compelling efforts of the artisanal Giaconda which placed Beechworth on the map for world class Chardonnay. Indigo Vineyard is a close neighbour, younger in age and slightly different in terms of aspect and clime, it yields a quality of Chardonnay which lends itself to a more modern style of winemaking. A measure of old world practices are nevertheless employed, wild ferments in new French oak and a judicious term of age, the objective is to encourage fruit to unlock its potential, while retaining natural eloquence and sense of place.

It was not until a decade of red wine vintages had passed before the Brokenwood team turned their hands to varietal whites. Now representing a major part of Brokenwood's production every year, good sites further afield have been husbanded for the construct of the bigger boned, more solidly structured styles of white wine not easily realized from within Hunter Valley. Different soils and aspect, clones and age of vines at Indigo, paint a picture of a region which demands to express itself. Parcels of Indigo Vineyard Chardonnay are whole bunch pressed into a high proportion of new French oak barrels from choice cooperages, for a wild, indigenous yeast vinification and term of maturation. Alcohol 12.5%
 
Vibrant yellow green hues. Pear and citrus notes over a background of mealy oak, wild ferment edges of struck flint.

Gary Farr established Chardonnay vines on his house block at Bannockburn in 1994. The quality of fruit, picked off a mix of Dijon clones and Penfolds 58, grown to a northerly slope of rich, friable red loam over limestone soils, clearly shows through in the finished wine. Grapes are all hand picked, inspected for health and whole bunch pressed, solids are collected and chilled before filling to a mix of seasoned and new French oak barrels. A naturally occuring wild fermentation, initiated by ambient wild yeasts, at cooler temperatures is followed by a course of lees stirring and the completion of malolactic. Barrels are racked, fined and lightly filtered for botling, normally at eleven months after vintage.
 
Light straw green hues. Varietal stonefruit and melon nose, complexed by nutty oak and spice notes. Generously layered palate showing tinned peaches and nectarine, preserved lemon and creamy autolysis. A wine of power and length, framed by toasty, richly textural yet mineral and refined, a seemingly endless finish.

Cleanskin Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2012
Yarra Valley
Good growers know that to produce exceptional wines, they must start with top quality fruit. The scale of operations for most Yarra Valley vineyards borders on the boutique, making impracticable the automation which other regions enjoy. Hands on viticulture and a reliance on the vagaries of mother nature may be traditionalist and old hat, but close contact with the vines yields the finest fruit. A Chardonnay that's elegant with exuberant aromas of stonefruit and vanilla, closely followed by a buttery palate of cashews and citrus, melon and peach.

Yarra Valley Chardonnay is a distinctive Australian style of wine, complex, fruit driven and food friendly. Crafted by devoted winemakers and growers who utilize organic methods in their vineyards and practise traditional as well as modern techniques throughout the vinification. A number of tasks are still done by hand, cultivation, pruning and picking, hand pressing, plunging and racking. The care and attention as well as the foibles that are part of the winemaking process, give good wines their personality. Through good viticultural practices the fruit is made to ripen to great levels of concentration, translating into a finished Chardonnay of good complexity and fine balance.
 
Pale straw hue. A fine bouquet of peaches and melon, limes and nuttyness. This elegant Chardonnay has a creamy palate brimming with citrus, vanillan and delicate butter character. A bright and zesty, medium bodied wine with a rich front palate that continues smoothly with great length and power to finish on supple hints of hawthorn and toast. A Chardonnay that's well ahead in it's class, drinking beautifully on release.
