Vermentino 2019 – Black Market Deal #41203
- Margaret River
If you’re into the natural and minimal intervention movements in wine, you’ll 100% know and revere the producer of this vermentino. It comes from a vineyard in Margaret River and was given a whole bunch press and time on skins. Fermentation was completed in seasoned oak before letting it rest on lees for a few months. The name of the game here is complexity. Look for lemongrass on the nose along with herbal and floral hints. The wine is a bit viscous on the palate, yet still quite clean and cleansing, finishing with a subtly medicinal note reminiscent of sweet vermouth. A little sulphur was used before bottling, so this isn’t technically a natural wine, but very little other intervention took place, letting the fruit speak for itself. A bit different but exceedingly delicious.

This one has a female winemaker, but because it’s a Black Market wine we’re sworn to secrecy. She’s a deadset legend, though.
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.

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.
