Our 1er Cru Chablis is made by Domaine Hamelin, who own three and a half hectares of this vineyard close to their winery. The wine is made without any oak, but the richness could easily fool you into thinking it had been aged in barrel. A very superior and food-friendly Chablis.
Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Combes au Sud Domaine Bergeret 2017
The tiny Domaine Christian Bergeret et Fille sells most of its wines locally; the 'fille' being Clotilde Bergeret who has taken over from her father. Saint-Aubin is situated just behind Puligny-Montrachet and is a great source of reasonably priced Côte d’Or white Burgundy.
Meerlust Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2018
Meerlust are one of South Africa’s great names; their Rubicon Bordeaux blend is a classic, but their Chardonnay is wonderful too. Barrel fermented in a mixture of new and second use barriques, it’s a more Burgundian style than most South African Chardonnays.
Mountford Estate Waipara Chardonnay 2014
Compared to Marlborough to the north, Waipara; near Christchurch, is very much a land of boutique wineries, but it has forged an enviable reputation for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Mountford Estate has long been one of Waipara’s leading wineries.
Moorooduc Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay 2016
The McIntyre family were pioneers of this fashionable cool-climate wine region near Melbourne and remain one of its preeminent Pinot and Chardonnay specialists. The style is Burgundian, with elegance and restraint replacing the more common Australian power.
Shaw and Smith M3 Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2017
Along with Petaluma’s Brian Croser, Shaw and Smith were some of the first to realise the potential of the cool-climate Adelaide Hills. Although more flashy and ‘New World’ than the Moorooduc, the outstanding quality of the fruit still shines through.
