About The Pack

There are many that believe that Chardonnay is Australia's greatest grape. 

The beauty of Australian Chardonnay is the diversity of style. It excels in all corners of the country. Each region has its own signature that it stamps on the variety.

This mixed pack is a tour de force of some of the greatest Chardonnays in the country. Six regions. Six iconic producers.

It's a limited edition pack and won't be available for long.

2016 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay

For decades Leeuwin Art Series has been the gold standard of Australian Chardonnay, considered by many as one of the few Australian 'Grand Cru' Chardonnays that can go toe-to-toe with the best of Burgundy and beyond.

The wine is fermented and aged in 100% new French oak of the highest quality. The power and intensity of the fruit is an easy match for the new oak, invariable finding balance and even finesse where most Chardonnays would be overpowered.

The 2016 release was awarded a near-perfect 99+ points from Ray Jordan. It's a wine set for an incredible life. A wine for when only the very best will do.

2017 Giaconda Estate Vineyard Chardonnay

The famed Giaconda Chardonnay is one of the great wines of Australia.

Grown by the iconic Rick Kinzbrunner on the hallowed slopes on the outskirts of Beechworth township, this wine has carved out a unique place for itself in Australian wine.

Notable for its extraordinary power and ageing potential, it has long been held up as a bastion of quality Australian Chardonnay to the rest of the world. It is made in limited amounts and sells out without fail each and every year. 

The 2017 is a hotly anticipated release. Allocations are extremely limited. If you want it for your cellar, you'll have to act quick.

2018 By Farr Chardonnay

The By Farr Chardonnay is a dazzling example of the heights possible for Australian Chardonnay.

A traditional Burgundian approach to crafting this wine by Nick Farr, like his father before him, gives this wine a power and refinement rarely seen outside of France.

The Chardonnay grows alongside the Sangreal Pinot Noir on the Farr vineyard atop limestone on an exposed North-facing slope. This site imparts a 'mineral' thread through the wine which is electric.

The 2018 is exquisitely well balanced as a young wine, the tension and drive, fruit and oak all in perfect harmony. It's a thrilling Chardonnay to drink.

2016 Mount Mary Chardonnay

The famed old vines on the Mount Mary estate yield some of the finest Chardonnay in the district.

Sensitive winemaking from Sam Middleton and respect for the fruit is at the core of this wine. Sam looks to support the Chardonnay with high quality oak (around 30% new), a relatively hard pressing to extract more in the way of texture and some lees stirring. Malo is avoided to retain acid purity.

Here, Sam Middleton pulls together an exceptional Yarra Chardonnay. There are few who managed to craft such a wine from the 2016 vintage. Sam nailed it.

In the words of James Halliday, this is "a sophisticated wine destined for a long life."

2015 Tyrrell's Vat 47 Chardonnay

The Vat 47 Chardonnay is the flagship Chardonnay produced by the famous Tyrrell family in the Hunter Valley.

A blend of the best old vine fruit available to the Tyrrell's winemakers, this is a powerful wine that exemplifies the rich, full-bodied style of Chardonnay that the Hunter Valley has become famous for.

This was Australia's first commercially available Chardonnay, first released in 1971. It's a wine with a reputation for uncompromising quality and has set the pace for premium Hunter Chardonnay from day dot.

A powerful, cellar-worthy wine with the softness and richness to stand toe to toe with any of Australia's top Chardonnays.

2018 Bindi Kostas Rind Chardonnay

The first Chardonnay produced at Bindi in 1991 was dedicated to Bill Dhillon's mentor, Kostas Rind.

Today, Bindi vigneron Michael Dhillon continues the tradition, crafting this intensely mineral-driven style of Chardonnay from fruit grown on the original Bindi Chardonnay plantings from 1988.

It's a wine that shows immense power, though drinks a little earlier than the revered Bindi Quartz Chardonnay.

Powerful, delicious and a great pleasure to drink, this is a Chardonnay for 'real' Chardonnay lovers.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
