Chardonnay 2019 – Black Market Deal #38826
- Rich, full
- Margaret River
Typical of Margaret River chardonnay, this wine is rich and concentrated, with good intensity. Lemon curd leaps out on the nose then follows through on the palate, which is balanced by tangy grapefruit freshness. There is a charming beeswax note, grippy acid and chalky minerality that glides across the palate in what is a classic, beautifully balanced chardonnay.
5 red stars from Halliday aren’t thrown around like confetti, they’re earned. The attention to detail when honouring the quality of fruit is indicative of this producer and their commitment to showcasing the best from the West.
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.

Margaret River is as elusive as it is beautiful, such that you really need to visit to truly grasp its haunting beauty. Über-premium Cabernet, Chardonnay and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends grow here. 'Margies' only produces 3% of the country's grapes, but commands over 20% of its premium wine market, and hasn't had an off vintage since 2006. You start to realise how often this region is overlooked when you can list brands like Leeuwin, Cape Mentelle, Vasse Felix, and Voyager, not to mention Cullen, Pierro, Moss Wood, and Deep Woods. It's safe to say that it's time for a revisit.
