2004 Knappstein Hand Picked Riesling (1500ml)   Halliday's   Top 100 of 2004 - 94 points ; Jeremy Oliver 91 points; Winewise - Highly Recommended   $75.00 per bottle

2017 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay (1500ml)   "This achieves another step up the quality ladder for Leeuwin Estate, seemingly impossible... The change is an increase in the intensity of the flavours, and hence their length and aftertaste. It's an extraordinary wine, among the greatest of Burgundy (and elsewhere in the world). Whatever you expect from its future development will be delivered" - James Halliday, 99 points & Special Value Star & Best Chardonnay 2021 Halliday Wine Companion Awards; "The palate is very intense and vibrant, with nervy acidity and richness to match, the aftertaste lingering on and on. A power-packed wine that is compact and tightly-packaged, latent like an unexploded bomb! Intense and sustained grapefruit and lemon aftertaste. An impressive, high-impact chardonnay of great potential. The sheer power of the fruit is awesome" - Huon Hooke, 98 Points & No.1 2017 Margaret River Chardonnay; "A wine of pristine qualities showing a minerally, talcy acid purity that cuts deep into the hallmark power and intensity... It's very much a product of the cooler 2017 vintage and is a wine that really needs a lot more time to reveal its best. I love the slightly graphite edge which contributes to its shape and lancing length" - Ray Jordan, 98 points; "Sometimes you just have to lean back and marvel. The art of Margaret River chardonnay. This is it. You don't just drink a wine like this, you set it in your mind as a benchmark. It's a wine built on power, texture and length... That seduction up front, that pure fresh peach, that huge energetic push through the back half. Blimey Charlie the crushed fennel characters here are full on. It's the frisky side of luxury. It's damn good" - Campbell Mattinson, 97 points; "Is absolutely one of the best ever released under the Art Series label... It would be easy to mistake this as serious white burgundy. It has real power and impact on entry, which flows to serious mid-palate intensity with those pear notes continuing across the wines perfect proportions. A wine of great power and vitality, the finale is oh-so lingering with echoes of almond, lime and lemon. A grand cru white burgundy quality at a fraction of the price, which could be cellared for 15-20+ years" Frank Wilden, Business Insider Australia    $285.00 per bottle

2016 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay (1500ml)   "The 2016 Leeuwin is the closest thing, stylistically, to Burgundy - Grand Cru Burgundy - I have seen in an Australian chardonnay. The combination of power, intensity, palate length and precision stamps it as something special. A little element of Puligny, Chassagne, with more than a decent hit of Margaret River. Deciding to give it 99-plus wasn't taken lightly" - Ray Jordan, 99+ points; "The perfumed perfection of the bouquet and the wonders of the palate, with its ever-shifting mosaic of white stone fruit, rock melon, grapefruit, Granny Smith apple and custard apple reign supreme. Oak? Yes, it's there, although subtle. Acidity? Yes, the giver of life now and into the future" - James Halliday, 99 points & 2019 Top 100 wines; "The wine lives up to to its billing as an Australian classic. It is a chardonnay of poise and precision, at once delicate and at the same time assertive it has the core strength of a ballerina. With layers of flavour including flintiness, nuts, Asian spices and bright, tight fruit on the grapefruit/ Packham pear side in of the spectrum this is downright delicious" - Winsor Dobbin, 99 points; "The palate has bracing acidity and concentrated flavour, which is still latent and promising more in time... The wine is still remarkably young and has a great career in front of it" - Huon Hooke, 96 points    $295.00 per bottle
