I am doing my own worldwide taste-test of white wines starting with Australia. Next up New Zealand! My preference: Chardonnay's and Rieslings.
  • Hess Select Chardonnay 2009
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $9.99
    A KC Classic! If your looking for an 'everyday' wine, look no further. A very good Chardonnay for a great price!
  • Shoofly Chardonnay 2008
    Sold Out
    2011 vintage available for $10.99
    • white wine
    • screw cap wine
    • WS89
    • WE88
    • ST88
    The 1st Australian wine I have ever tried. Definetly has a range of fruit flavors with a nice zing of lemon zest with a mineral-dry after taste. A good wine worth trying!
  • Mesh Eden Valley Riesling 2008
    Sold Out
    $22.99
    • white wine
    • screw cap wine
    • WS91
    • RP90
    Very interesting lemon-lime, citrus flavor combination. Savory, dry and minerally. A very good Riesling. Wish I had another bottle as this vintage is sold out! Update: I was able to locate it and bought 2 cases on the spot!!
  • Oyster Bay Marlborough Chardonnay 2009
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $11.99
    The 1st New Zealand wine I have ever tried. Dry and minerally with a hint of oak and stone fruit for a quenching after taste. Hard to believe its a Chardonnay! Worth picking up a couple of bottles for a solid, refreshing change of pace Chardonnay.
  • Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling 2009
    Sold Out
    2013 vintage available for $16.99
    • white wine
    • screw cap wine
    • JH94
    • WS91
    • RP91
    Interesting dry, but also light and refreshing, Riesling. I like it.
  • The Crossings Unoaked Chardonnay 2008
    Sold Out
    $14.79
    A very light Chardonnay with a nice mineral aftertaste. Interesting contrast to Oyster Bay (NZ) as they are both from the same region. The crossings is unoaked, so, to me, it seems to be missing something (as i prefer oaked). Would be great on a hot summers night and I will definetly open my other bottle of this vintage on a hot August evening.....
  • Hess Collection Napa Valley Chardonnay 2008
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $19.99
    Nice Asian-type flavor with tangerines and other citrus flavors. Would be great with grilled shrimp or crab! A nice change of pace in the Hess tradition.
  • Babich Hawkes Bay Unoaked Chardonnay 2008
    Sold Out
    $13.00
    Nice tropical fruit blends which is well balanced against the acidity. Richer and creamier than The Crossings or Oyster Bay. HB does a nice job to display the difference in the regions between HB and Marlborough. However, I would prefer OB and The Crossings to Hawkes Bay (in that order)
  • Fireblock Dry Riesling Watervale Clare Valley 2008
    Sold Out
    $18.00
    Dry and tangy describe this Riesling very well. It has the trademark 'minerally aftertaste' with various citrus overtones. A fine Riesling worth trying, but I prefer the Mesh (by a wide margin!) especially in this price range.
  • Allan Scott Marlborough Riesling 2008
    Sold Out
    $9.79
    More citrusy than lemony, and could use some more fruit intensity. The hint of spice is nice and not overpowering. Not a bad riesling at all and could easily be considered an 'every day' riesling. Good value for the price.
  • Yellow Tail The Reserve Chardonnay 2007
    Sold Out
    $11.79
    Silky and smooth Chardonnay, with a heavy golden drinkability. A nice change of pace but not my favorite.
  • Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2010
    Sold Out
    2014 vintage available for $14.99
  • Yalumba Y Series Riesling 2009
