Chardonnay 2018 – Black Market Deal #36597
- Yarra Valley
This is Yarra chardonnay with oomph and concentration not normally seen out of the region. The winery kept noticing a small section of their vineyard was producing fruit that was overpowering the rest of the chardonnay in its blends. So they decided to embrace this and bottle it as a separate wine, giving it the full gamut of hand-harvesting, gentle slow fermentation with wild yeast and extended time in 100% new French oak. What’s in the bottle is explosive stuff, certainly not for those that want lean chardonnay. Opulent would be an appropriate word for this wine. There’s concentrated citrus, toasty oak, stone fruits, flintiness, butter and honey. It’s definitely quite balanced, but balanced like two elephants on a seesaw.
