This Mornington Peninsula chardonnay has more moves than Tex Perkins at Big Day out in 2001 - how’s that for a big statement?! Like Tex - it’s a crowd-pleaser and it’s from a producer that is universally loved. A medium-bodied style, this wine has juicy stone fruit and acidity at the same time as being smooth, deep and luscious. There’s a leesy-ness that adds a savoury note to an otherwise pure-fruited wine. If I was going to a desert island, I’m not sure if I’d take Tex or this chardonnay, as they would both be great company.
Note: Please note: This wine has recently been re-branded, so expect a new look on an old fav.
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.

The Mornington Peninsula is one of those places you dream of retiring - once you've made a cool $10m to get you into the Red Hill club. The sublime mix of temperate climate, expansive views, lush hills and pristine beaches is something not many would turn their nose up at. You can rest assured that every winery here has all the money they need, and although the wines may be relatively expensive, they're made as close to idealistic aspirations as possible. It's hard to find a bad wine. The usual cool climate suspects are the mainstay here (Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Riesling) and they range from ethereal to weighty. Whichever end of the spectrum, they're all class.
