Pinot Noir Syrah 2017 – Black Market Deal #38114
- Elegant, lighter
- Adelaide Hills
Pinot Syrah is not a classic blend, but it’s something we are seeing more of these days, and we like it! Like all blends, it’s got the sum of the parts - the strawberries, savoury notes and elegance of pinot, alongside the depth, dark fruits and spice of shiraz. This particular example is full of cherries and cola on the nose, and plums and licorice on the palate. Medium-bodied, this is the type of wine that will suit just about any meal and can easily be served chilled in the cooler months.
What is a Black Market deal?
Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article – absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
