The Best of the Best: 2020 Varietal Winners

2020 Chardonnay Varietal Winners

The white grape variety chardonnay has established great prominence in Australia, flourishing with elegance and complexity throughout the country. Many honour its capability of growing well under a melange of conditions, as demonstrated below, with its success all over. A 99-point example from Margaret River has been crowned this year’s highest-rated chardonnay wine.

James Halliday on the 2020 Chardonnay Varietal Winners

"Many critics/observers are fond of noting that chardonnay could grow up a lamp post, so willing is it to show its best under less than perfect growing conditions. True though that may be, the nexus between variety and region here is moulded in 24 carat gold."
