22, two little ducks! Everyone’s a winner in shiraz bingo. South Australia makes a big feature in this pack, plus a cellared Heathcote number and a WA shiraz from the Winemaker of the Year. Like I said, everyone’s a winner.

Each pack contains TWO of each the following vinos:

BLACK MARKET Shiraz 2017

Frankland River, WA

Boutique producer | Small batch

The man behind this wine is kind of a big deal in winemaking terms, having produced wines under his main label that have taken out big (Jimmy Watson big) awards, and now Halliday’s Winemaker of the Year. This side project of his allows him all the freedom to flaunt this winemaking prowess however he sees fit. 

And so he saw fit to make a juicy and approachable, darkly-fruited and deeply flavoured shiraz from first rate Frankland River fruit, and we saw fit to snap it up for you. Compared to the Barossa ballbusters you’re used to, this one’s inky, exotically spiced and fine-grained.

YOU’D PAY $35 full price.

BLACK MARKET Shiraz 2017

McLaren Vale, SA

5 red star Halliday rated winery | Halliday Dark Horse Winery award

Consistency is everything, and this maker’s consistently rocking out. We got the 2016 version of this wine before it rated, and it did us proud with 94s and 95s. This vintage has met all expectations, and everyone’s excited to welcome the new vintage of this wine.

It’s jam-packed with everything we love about the Vale… dark fruits, chocolate, spice, herbal hints and fine tannins. And because you guys have got great taste, we know you’re going to love it just as much as us.

YOU’D PAY $30 full price.

BLACK MARKET Shiraz 2014

Heathcote, VIC

92pts James Halliday | 5 red star Halliday rated winery

“OK, so we’ve never had a red wine yet from this amazing producer... we’ve had a rosé and a chardonnay and now we’re just mopping up the last of the 2014 shiraz so they can roll to the 2015. Whole bunches, loads of fruit and oak - needs time.” - Karel, Mofo Wine Buyer. Halliday echoed that, saying it was built for the long haul. Time will tell, but only if you’re one of the lucky few to nab a case.

YOU’D PAY $28 full price.

BLACK MARKET Shiraz 2016

Adelaide Hills, SA

96pts James Halliday | 2 x Gold medals Major Wine Competition | Gold medal Major Wine Publisher | 93pts Patrick Eckel | 5 red star Halliday rated winery

Deeper and darker than you might expect from a Hills shiraz, this has all the savoury spice and chocolatey hallmarks of the Vale. But with those comes a freshness and food-friendliness that the Vale would struggle hard to hit. From an eco-sustainable winery in the Hills, this wine certainly freshens you up. The perfect amount of funk lifts it up, cradled by some background French oak flavour. It’s instantly delicious, and consistently rewarding. So reward yourself, instantly.

YOU’D PAY $26 full price.

BLACK MARKET Shiraz 2016

Adelaide Hills, SA

Boutique producer

From a team in the Hills who know shiraz (and whose shiraz you’ll know), this is a great example of the variety. It packs finesse and texture, with more red than black fruit, lots of spice and vanilla (a little syrah-like), plus some chocolate and licorice thrown in. French oak flavour is prominent now, but will melt into the juicy, savoury, medium-bodied fruit over time. 

YOU’D PAY $25 full price.

BLACK MARKET Shiraz 2013

South Australia

94pts Qwine | 92pts Nick Stock | 90pts James Halliday | Gold medal Limestone Coast Wine Show | 5 star Halliday rated winery

This unmentionable region’s not renowned for its shiraz, but I’ve said before and I will again - it should be. The kind of cool, but actually warm, region gets the best of both worlds of shiraz and ties them together, typically - as in this classic case - with some judicious old and new French and American oak. And if you’re lucky - which you are again in this case - you get a few years in bottle for everything to knit together. 

And after those five years, you have an elegant, fine-boned but fleshy and flavoursome shiraz that makes the most of its mottled climate, thanks to an excellent vintage. It’s fruity, meaty, the tannin fine-grained and subtle, overlaid with brightly spiced and earthy juiciness. It’s quite a light-footed palate and better for it, as it makes the intensity of flavour really sing.

YOU’D PAY $20 full price.
