Do I need to keep mentioning that Gembrook Hill is one of my favourite wineries? Probably not. Their chardonnay is usually only released in exceptional vintages; usually it goes into their Blanc de Blancs. Here’s what they say: “By comsumer demand, we reintroduce the still wine from our chardonnay grapes rather than reserving them all for our Blanc de Blancs. This stunning wine is in high demand and quantities are limited.”
I’ve got 7 BOTTLES IN MELBOURNE which are not caught by the lockdown and could possibly be here in a couple of weeks if ordered, even though I’m staying safe and saying late October.
You might also like to try the 2016 vintage – 4 btls – S$63 – Mike Bennie 95, but that is caught in the Melbourne lockdown
