Chardonnay 2020 – Black Market Deal #39211
- Rich, full
- Margaret River
We’ve dabbled in the wines of this Five Red Star Halliday Rated Producer in the past, but this’ll be the first chardonnay for us. It’s about time to be honest. They’ve got a rockstar of a winemaker and sit right in the heart of Margaret River. That’s a winning combination right there. Classic margs chardy with lime, peach, bright acidity and some nuttiness. A little rich, quite minerally and immensely satisfying. What took us so long?
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.
“This Margaret River winery make some delicious small batch chardonnay that always impresses, this one included.”
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.
