Margaret River dominated but, despite taking most of the top marks, our panel warned the region against a creeping complacency, and praised the state's smaller regions. See the top 11 Western Australian Chardonnays from our tasting as featured in the June 2013 magazine issue...

Individual judge’s scores: Andrew Jefford 18.5 Roger Jones 18 Alessandro Marchesan 18
Opulent nose with lovely richness and notes of nectarines and red citrus fruit. On the palate, this is agreeably soft, mellow, complex, layered and long. There’s great minerality coming through and a long, rich finish. A very classy wine.
