Chardonnay Poll Now Closed

Not surprisingly, Leeuwin Estate took the Chardonnay crown. Highly regarded Chardonnays from Petaluma, Penfolds and Pierro did not get one vote. Bindi is an up-and-comer. Let's see how they go in the Pinot Noir poll. Winners so far

Shiraz <$100 per bottle: Henschke Mt. Edelstone
Cabernet and Blends: Cullen Diana Madeline
Shiraz/Viognier: Clonakilla
Riesling: Grosset Polish Hill
Chardonnay: Leeuwin Art Series

I would be very happy with a line-up like this any day. Another thought: I would be proud to put up these wines in any country comparison and demonstrate the high quality variety Australia can produce.
