The Eleven. Pat Cummins could be the face of this label, but not so. It's named after the eleven rows first planted back in 1986. Concentrated and alluring, this is just brilliant Chardonnay.
White fleshed stonefruit gets in deep. Some barbecued peach, struck match and nuttiness jump on board for the ride too. A ball of pleasure, there's a sizzle to the lemony and grapefruit acidity. A wine that asks a lot of questions, yet you can't help but go back time and again to seek the answers. Custard powder and vanilla wash through late as does an ever so fine rub of ginger that adds further intrigue. Super classy as you'd come to expect from Simon Black if you follow his Chardonnays closely. Go here, it's so joyous that you deserve a piece of the action.
