  • 2015 The Lucky Lizard Chardonnay, d’ArenbergWhite Wine

    2015 The Lucky Lizard Chardonnay, d’Arenberg

    £1495

    This wine opens with a flourishing bouquet – flashes of pineapple, pear drop, honeysuckle, raw cashew and a hint of seaspray. On the palate the flavours err on the savoury side, preserved lemon, spice, cold stone with just a ripple of lemon butter. The finish has a beeswax nature to it but the perfectly pitched acidity and slightly saline tail will urge you to take another sip. After 5 years in bottle the wine has taken on even greater complexity and texture.

    Lucky Lizard is named after the native Bearded Dragon lizards that in summer find their way into grapes destined for the winery. Luckily for the lizards, the gentleness of the d’Arenberg crusher allows them to pass through the ordeal slightly shaken, but unharmed.

  • 2013 The Lucky Lizard Chardonnay, d’ArenbergWhite Wine

    2013 The Lucky Lizard Chardonnay, d’Arenberg

    £1595

    This is an exceptional Adelaide Hills Chardonnay exhibiting crisp and minerally cool climate characters, mixed with an authentic splash of Aussie sunshine.

    The nose is brimming with classic Chardonnay characters of white nectarine, granny smith apple, frangipani and fig with the addition of a lovely savoury, sea spray note. There is also a very faint whisper of butterscotch derived from the lightly toasted and well-seasoned French oak.

    The palate is also bursting with flavour but the wine is not at all blousy. On the contrary, the mineral-like acidity tightens the ship and a raft of savoury, cashew and oyster shell flavours kick in, driving the wine to a fine and persistent finish.

  • 2020 The Dry Dam Riesling, d’ArenbergWhite Wine

    2020 The Dry Dam Riesling, d’Arenberg

    £1650

    The Dry Dam Riesling 2020 has a delightfully lifted nose, loaded with lemons, limes, jasmine and Granny Smith. The palate displays a wonderful balance between acid and sweetness, giving that Dry Dam hallmark of sherbet-like character. Full of flavour yet pristine and refined. Drinks perfectly well young but promises to age well, developing toasty, marmalade notes for beyond a decade.

    The Name. : In 1992 d’Arenberg’s neighbours built a dam that remained empty, as it was a dry winter. The next year it rained but the dam was jinxed and didn’t hold water. A dry dam was bad news for d’Arenberg’s neighbouring farmers but promises good results for their old, dry-grown, low-yielding vines.

  • 2017 White Label Chardonnay, Petaluma Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2017 White Label Chardonnay, Petaluma

    £1895

    The 2017 Petaluma White Label Chardonnay is a bright, fruit-forward wine. Subtle stone fruits and citrus on the nose combine with lovely creaminess and ripe melon on the palate. Subtle oak frames lovely Adelaide Hills acidity. A complex creamy-textured fruit-driven wine, typical of the modern cool-climate Australian Chardonnay style. Mouth-filling and complex now, it will reward medium term cellaring, filling out in the bottle.

    The White Label range is crafted in the same Petaluma philosophy as the highly regarded Yellow Label. The grapes are grown in the key regions of Adelaide Hills (Chardonnay) and Coonawarra (Cabernet). These wines are perfect to enjoy upon their release and get better with 5-7 years of age.  Great highly drinkable wines for occasions with friends, family and food!

    2017 The Dry Dam Riesling, d’Arenberg

    £1995

    2017 is a great vintage for the Dry Dam Riesling, named after a neighbouring farmers dam that year after year was either dry or didn’t hold water!   Teeming with white flowers and granny smith, backed by a lovely core of lemon and lime. The sweetness on the palate is tempered by a sustained seam of perfectly pitched acidity. A sherbet-like note is typical of classic Riesling years in McLaren Vale and is unmistakable in this wine. Not a hint of metallic hardness, the mouthfeel is so refined and balanced.  Enjoy the heady yet delicate personality of this wine in youth or confidently cellar it, knowing, with time it promises even greater range and refinement.

  • NV Croser ‘Adelaide Hills’ Sparkling, Petaluma Wine Republic Heros Champagne & Sparkling Wine

    NV Croser ‘Adelaide Hills’ Sparkling, Petaluma

    £2150

    Petaluma Croser sparkling wine is a truly awesome wine and seriously good value, a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, made by the Champagne method.

    The Chardonnay offers nectarine, cashews and biscuity characters — the backbone of the Croser Non-Vintage palate — with the Pinot Noir providing a fine mousse and strawberry fruit lift. Incredibly bubbly, with a long-lasting dry finish.

    As is the tradition with non-vintage Champagne, this wine is a blend of the current vintage Croser with reserve wine from several older vintages — with each vintage adding distinctive qualities to the final blend. Croser Non Vintage stays true to the ‘aperitif’ style of Vintage Croser, showcasing a rich, full blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from selected sites in the cool climate Piccadilly Valley and other parts of the Adelaide Hills.

    Hand-picked fruit is whole bunch pressed or crushed and pressed, with the free-run juice then fermented using Petaluma’s specially selected yeast strain in barrique and tank. The tiraged sparkling wine is left to age on yeast lees for 12 months and disgorged on demand — this ensures the wine retains optimum freshness and vitality.

    2015 The Dry Dam Riesling, d’Arenberg

    £2250

    The 2015 Dry Dam Riesling is named after a neighbouring farmers dam that year after year was either dry or didn’t hold water.

    Jasmine and orange blossom, along with lemon and lime characters leap from the glass. The sugar-acid balance from this fine vintage is impeccable. While both are present, they manage to meld together creating a mouth-watering yet supple sherbet character, which finishes dry and mineral, not cloying in the slightest.

    A pleasure to drink right now, this wine will evolve elegantly for many years to come.
