Chardonnay 2020 – Black Market Deal #2483
Martinborough chardonnay always comes through with bright fruit, richness on the palate and stunning minerality. The producer hits all the right notes with this one, providing aromas of stone fruits, nectarines and peaches. There’s a hint of vanilla and toastiness from ageing in French oak and the palate is silky, complex and driving with vibrant acid and a creamy finish. Truly Martinborough at its best.

Anyone who's ever tried Martinborough pinot noir will shout its praises from the rooftop... at least, anyone who's not a Marlborough diehard. There seems to be a nice rivalry in the pinot stakes between the two regions, with Martinborough producing more structural (some would say "Burgundian") styles, as opposed to Marlborough's fruity flavour fests. If you see one, nab it. Also keep an eye out for the aromatic whites.
