This is actually cheaper at $26/bottle in a 6 pack. Not sure how TWC sales work, but perhaps a little misleading. Just ordered a couple!
thanks - should actually be $23.45/$24.35 after extra 10% off :)

In the pantheon of great years, 2017 holds a special place. In the last few years, if you are a Chablis fan and you didn’t fill your boots with this great year, may I politely ask why the hell not?

A classic year and one with great concentration, purity, and balance. They will age superbly. Low yields, and this is the problem – overall, a small vintage. The word “exceptional” is thrown around a bit much, but here it seems completely warranted.

La Chablisienne 1er Cru Cote De Lechet 2016/2017 $28.09/$29.57 @ First Choice Liquor after SITEWIDE10 for 10% off, 2777269688208 for 10% off (myColes), 7% Cashrewards - ends midnight AEST tonight
2017 La Chablisienne 1er Cru Cote De Lechet - Chablis $44
Vintage Cellars have been stocking (and I have been enjoying) the wines from leading Burgundy co-operative, La Chablisienne, for many years now, and the current range is as good as ever. Being one of the country’s largest liquor chains, of course, means that Vintage Cellars can both ship ample quantities of these wines and also retail direct, avoiding third-party importer mark-up, meaning this lovely, gently honeyed, oyster-shell-dry Premier Cru Chablis not only sells for an attractive price, but is also widely available.

2020 Ochota Barrels Slint [Adelaide Hills]
Taras Ochota once described his winemaking approach like this: “Music and wine are so connected in so many ways. I reckon you can often see the styles of music people like in the wines they make. I like edgy music, rawer, sharper, and my wines tend to be all elbows and knees sticking out.” This stunning young chardonnay is an excellent illustration of that: nervy, saline, with layers of citrusy, nutty and mineral flavours compressed into each other, like rough-edged slate. $40
2020 Ochota Barrels Slint - $50 @ DRNKS - free delivery to SYD, MEL, BNE, ADL, PER, CBR, HBA, NTL, WOL, BNK

I've decided to join this thread too, I've always shown minimal interest in white but after drinking a beautiful Chardonnay Monday I'm definitely on the hunt for a few bottles.
