Chardonnay 2018 – Black Market Deal #34960
In Marlborough, chardonnay is sometimes overshadowed by its louder sibling sauv blanc. Honestly, that’s a crying shame. Marlborough chardy, especially from a top producer such as this one, has depth, complexity, length and drive. This one is a bit creamy, with nectarine and lemon custard on the nose prefacing a palate of white peach, oatmeal and vanilla riding a wave of enticing minerality. Sometimes it’s the quiet ones you gotta watch out for.
