2016 Willem Kurt Beechworth Chardonnay

Beechworth, VIC

Great modern approach to Beechworth Chardonnay.



About The Wine

Beechworth's reputation for top-flight Chardonnay is well earned. The region has produced some insanely powerful Chardonnays over the past decade or more.

Willem Kurt's owner/winemaker Daniel Balzer has perhaps reigned in a little of that power with his newest release of Chardonnay but left none wanting in flavour. This is a great modern example of the direction of the region. It has length and intensity without leaning too heavily on oak. It maintains freshness with deliciousness above all. With a strong 94 points from Campbell Mattinson, this is one for lovers of the variety.

Truly, one of the best value wines we've seen from the region.


Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"This is really good Chardonnay. It’s fine, but it throbs with quiet power and juicy flavour. Grapefruit and nectarine, subtle cedar oak, a little spice, almond and oatmeal. Lines of acidity bind it tight, and the finish is clean, flinty and long. It’s a beautiful example of Chardonnay. Something for everyone here, perhaps. Tasting it, and forming an opinion on its quality took me about 20 seconds, which is invariably a good sign." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
