Wine Front 94 points. "Bindi hasn’t put a step wrong in its dual-generation existence, and continues on a righteous path of unswerving attention to vineyard, gentle application of winemaking, great thought in every aspect of wine-vine life. Michael Dhillon would have to be one of the youngest professorial wine thinkers going around. Bindi’s legend and legacy is well on its way, as we know. Here’s another release to admire over time. A nice mesh of lemon lime, floral notes, peanut brittle, ginger in the bouquet. All understated, all good. Palate is light and juicy, bright, crisp, shows some good fruitiness, a touch of nutty savouriness,...

James Suckling 93 points. Very rich here with attractively flinty, peach and lemon aromas that lead to a powerful and fresh palate with a sleek, fluid and very juicy impression. Great balance. JS. Winemaker Notes An intense, mineral wine fully ripe but lean, taught and intense with savoury, creamy elements. Fragrant notes of orange blossom, nectarine stone, spice and subtle nuttiness are usual with a vibrant, tight, long palate highlighted by clean acidity, wonderful texture and fine length.

James Suckling 96 points. This is a very clear, pure expression of white and yellow peaches, lemons, some minerally gun flint and very subtle oak. Really dialed-in and focused on the nose. Similarly, the palate is tautly focused, yet has fully ripe flavors in the peach and lemon spectrum. It arcs smoothly into a composed, long and balanced finish. Chardonnay that’s resolved to this extent on release is a rare thing. JS. Halliday Wine Companion 96 points. The tension in this is fabulous. Taut as a snare drum, yet intense in flavour.

Wine Companion 96 points. While Quartz gets the bow for its complexity and depth, Kostas Rind is no slouch. A lovely balance of citrus, white stone fruit, ginger spice and a touch of nutty lees that are more like seasoning, same with the oak influence. There’s a lightness and purity with some complex sulphides and ultra-refreshing acidity. Very satisfying. Utterly enticing. 96 points.

The Kostas Rind Chardonnay is grown in a 1.5 hectare plot. The wine is fermented in French barrels of which typically 20% are new. Fermentation occurs without the addition of cultured yeast and the wine remains in barrel on yeast lees over winter with only a small amount of malo-lactic conversion taking place. It is racked around eight months after vintage, and...

The word ‘quartz’ adorns a couple of my favourite wines from all over the globe, now I think of it. Quartz is the strength in the soils of the best chardonnay bits of Bindi’s garden too. And here, another magnificent release. Alas, not tasted with Michael Dhillon as has been a habit at times. If you want to look up ‘complexity; wine’ or ‘premium wine’ or ‘fucking awesome’ in a dictionary then I suggest a picture of this bottle accompanies.

SG$140

In many ways the most Burgundian of any of the Leeuwin releases, this will rank up there with the best to date. There’s a waxy light mealy aroma which picks up nuances of limestone and spice with a trace of grapefruit. But it is the palate that really distinguishes it. There is an austerity with the minerally chalky feel that cuts through the fruit extending to a finish of extraordinary length. Precision and focus harness a wine of great power and poise before dry savoury edges lift the finish.

Lowestoft Best Barrels Chardonnay 2019 (JH 96)

SG$75
SG$75

HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 2022, 96 POINTS. Hand-picked fruit from the Tasman Peninsula, Coal River and Tamar Valleys. Fermented on full solids and matured 10 months in 35% new French oak hogsheads. Launching Tasmania's most exciting new premium label, the Fogarty Group sure has hit the ground running. This is pitch-perfect chardonnay that embraces the generosity of a warm season and frames it intricately in crystalline acidity, top-class oak and just the right whif of struck-flint reduction. Masterfully assembled and a joy to taste for the first time. Tyson Stelzer, Aug 2021. #TAS

McWilliams Tumbarumba 660 Chardonnay 2018 (JH 93)

SG$36
SG$36

Hand picked at 750m elevation, on basaltic soils. Whole-bunch pressed to barrel, with partial mlf for acid retention. It's hard to think of too many chardonnays better for this sort of price. Flinty, streamlined and plump enough to mitigate any sense of anorexia. Stone-fruit accents, flecked with oak and lees-derived roasted nuts and nougat. The finish is long, dutifully generous and frankly, rather sophisticated, as if a wine almost twice the price. 93 points. Ned Goodwin MW Published 28 June 2022

James Halliday 95 points. McWilliam's champions the use of grapes planted in high altitude/cool-climate regions to deliver quality wines with crisp, fruit-driven flavours and our flagship McWilliam's 842 Chardonnay epitomises this philosophy. The name 842 references the peak altitude of the Tumbarumba wine region at 842 metres above sea level. A powerful wine with great fruit intensity matched and balanced by creamy rich texture and the wonderful crisp slatey natural acidity of Tumbarumba. The melon and stone fruit flavours are perfectly ripe with a pure line of grapefruit acidity that drives the wine to fantastic depth and length, with an...

“This fresh and complex young chardonnay offers peach and melon aromas with gently buttery, biscuity nuances, too. The balance of acidity is right for the ripe-peach flavors. Waffle-cone finish. 90 Points.” JamesSuckling.com, October 2020 [2019 Vintage]. “Fresh-faced stye with just enough texture, complexity and length to keep most folks happy.
