With no less than 96 points from Mr. Halliday himself, this is clearly some pretty swish savvy. You’d expect it from this producer, though - we reckon they’re one of the Yarra’s best. This is single vineyard magic, bristling with freshly cut grass, slate, citrus and passionfuit pizzaz. You could never call it boring! There’s loads of depth to discover in the glass, though it’s damn delicious at face value too. In a way, it offers everyone something different. If you drink vino just to lubricate your voicebox at a catch-up, this’ll keep the gabble gears turning. Equally, if you like to ponder life, love and the complexities of grape juice, this’ll offer plenty of food for thought. Delicious stuff!
Let’s talk about the Black Market. It’s our way of getting you the best possible value, while looking after our favourite wineries. We don’t want to hurt their relations with other retailers, just because they gave us the best price. So, we only reveal the essentials on-site: region, grape, points & prizes, and price. You won’t know the name of the wine until it hits your doorstep, but we promise it’s great stuff!
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
