Chardonnay 2019 – Black Market Deal #39465
- Adelaide Hills
This ranks right up there with the absolute best of the best in Adelaide Hills chardonnay. This is no ‘peek your head around the corner and whisper’ sort of chardy. It’s a full-throated bellow from point blank range. The grapes were hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, wild fermented and sent to new French oak for 9 months. It’s exploding with intensity, driven by length and more complex than that Facebook algorithm that keeps making the mofo ads pop up in your feed. If you’re into chardonnay with the power of a bursting supernova, then this belongs in your glass.

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
