Chardonnay 2018 – Black Market Deal #37108
- Rich, full
If you are impressed by data, then check this out. Tasmania crushes only 0.8% of the entire Australian grape harvest. Coal River Valley, the source of this chardonnay, is 25% of the Tasmanian grape harvest. And chardonnay is 25% of the total Tasmanian harvest. So you are looking at a chardy from a Five Star Halliday Rated Winery that is part of 0.05% of the total wine production of Australia. And it’s only $13!!! That’s insane. Now, to the wine itself. It’s a bit toasty and creamy, with evident minerality and citrus running through. For Tassie chardy, it’s pretty full-bodied and you can definitely pick up the oak on the palate. It’s a rare wine on a rare deal.
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.

Some of the country's highest quality and best value wines unarguably come from this wee island, and the average bottle price is higher than any other region. It is probably the most sustainable part of the Aussie wine industry, given its relatively untapped potential and consistency of quality.There's no denying that the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, sparkling and aromatic whites are up there with the best.
