About The Wine
The Terre Maritime is a new flagship Chardonnay for Barney Flanders to sit alongside the Terre de Feu Pinot Noir as his top releases from the vintage.
This wine comes from the highest portion of the Merricks vineyard. The fruit from these precious few vines has always performed better, showing more intensity and power than the rest of the Merricks block.
With the perfect growing conditions in 2017 Barney finally pulled the trigger and bottled it separately.
This is a sensational Chardonnay. Undoubtedly one of the most impressive wines ever released from this benchmark Mornington producer.
Only two barrels were made, this will sell out. Do not hesitate.
Garagiste is the brainchild of Barnaby Flanders.
After leaving Allied Wines in 2003 he embarked on a mission to produce small batch premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay under his own label in his beloved Mornington Peninsula.
Barney loves the sub-regionality to be exploited in Mornington Peninsula, the slight alterations in aspect and soil profile within this small wine producing region provide him with the scaffolding around which he builds his stunning harem of small batch wines.
They are only ever made in small quantities so time is of the essence if you want to explore the world of Garagiste.
