About The Wine
Another fantastic release here of one of Victoria's best value Chardonnays.
Lower yields in 2020 means this wine contains mostly declassified fruit from Barney Flanders' iconic Merricks vineyard. Whole bunches and older large format oak.. this is a savoury, pithy Chardonnay with drive and refreshment.
There is never a lot of this wine around and given the value on offer, it's no wonder. Great buying.
Garagiste is the brainchild of Barnaby Flanders.
After leaving Allies 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.
