Riesling 2020 – Black Market Deal #37043
- Fresh, juicy
This is quite an experience. It’s actually like biting into a lemon. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not at all unpleasant. It’s not nearly as sour as that’d be in reality, but that flavour is just… WOW! You can taste the rind, the pith, the juice washing over the palate in succession. I half expected to find a pip at any point. Next to that is candied lemon rind, sherbet, some limes and a tang of kiwi, too. You’d want to drizzle this over your seafood, or squeeze it on pancakes with some sugar. How many wines give you such an evocative experience? Very few quite like this!
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.

Here's where cool climate varietals really come to play in WA. Slightly cooler again than Manjimup, you'll find the best of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Semillon in this relatively remote region. A recent find in the scheme of things, the first vines were only planted here in 1977. Such a lush region forested with famous Karri trees, that only fifteen per cent of its area is available for viticulture. Believe it or not though, there are now over 50 cellar doors here! Enjoy every drop you can find from Pemberton, and if you're lucky enough, match it with the local marron, truffles or trout.
