Ask any wine geek to name a famous grower’s vineyard in the Yarra Valley, and most will name Willowlake first. It’s that renowned. This sauv blanc master (I don’t say this lightly) sources his fruit from there. He does a bit more with the fruit as well, giving it time in oak and some lees stirring. You get texture, structure, length and power to carry the varietal’s typical bright fruit flavours. While this 2018 is a new release, James Halliday has scored all the previous releases in the high 90’s. It’s a sauv blanc for the sophisticated wine snob set at a corner bottle-o price.
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.
