PRE-ARRIVAL: Chardonnay 2018 – Black Market Deal #40701
- Rich, full
While Tassie chardonnay is of course a big deal, in reality there is very little made. So when we land some good stuff, we get very excited. And this isn’t just good stuff, it’s a single block reserve chardy from one of our absolute favourite Coal River Valley producers. Super elegant and very concentrated (as you’d expect) with notes of peach, apple and nectarine. It’s a little creamy but the real textural impact lies in the minerality reminiscent of wet stones. Even after four years of age, it feels like a youngun with plenty of golden years ahead.
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.
We expect this wine to hit our warehouse Monday, Jan 31. Place your order as normal and we’ll dispatch it to you as soon as it arrives.
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.
