Pinot Noir 2018 – Black Market Deal #41407
- Medium bodied
Ooooh!!! A new pinot for the ‘Fo! This producer has been around for years but this is our first go-round with them. Sunbury is one of those under-the-radar cool climate regions in Victoria, not because it hasn’t earned the acclaim, but rather because such small volumes of wine are produced there. This reserve pinot hits all those savoury notes. It’s earthy, slightly reductive and hints at forest floor and autumn leaves. The fruit expressed is blood plum and black cherry and there’s a nice juiciness on the mid-palate. Some time in oak has also provided a touch of cedar box along with the structure to age well. We’re not yet sure if this is a one-off or a wine we can continue to stock, but we are really hoping for the latter.
What is a Black Market deal?
Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article – absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

If I had to wrap Vic up in a broad sweeping statement about so many regions bundled up into a convenient if arbitrary delineation based on government legislated boundaries, then it would be to say that it's home to some of the greatest cool climate regions in the world, producing wonders such as Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir, Henty Riesling, Nagambie Marsanne and Yarra Valley Chardonnay. If you're Victorian, then count yourself lucky that you're so close to this juice, you footy-loving, tram-catching, fixie-riding freak, you.
