Chardonnay 2016 – Black Market Deal #36164
- Rich, full
- Yarra Valley
You’ll know this producer, mofos. They certainly aren’t low profile, but we have to be with this wine. It’s their estate chardonnay with a few years on it to start developing those nutty cashew characteristics. There’s still heaps of lemony citrus and stone fruits like you’d expect from top notch Yarra chardy of course. It’s that extra bit that make it all the more interesting, though. The wine was harvested off 15-30 year old vines from high vineyard slopes, fermented naturally in tank and barrel, and given 10 months to rest on lees. It’s not age before beauty, it’s age along with beauty.
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.
