PRE-ARRIVAL: Shiraz 2012 – Black Market Deal #41588
- Textured, savoury
We’re counting our lucky stars mofo, because the offers from this producer seem to be getting sweeter and sweeter. We’ve worked with a few of their cellar reserve wines, one of them being amongst our most in-demand wines of the last year. Yes, you read that right: 10 year aged shiraz for just over $10. Seems ridiculous, doesn’t it? This is a wine that satisfies all desires with its rich body, brooding dark fruits and undeniable dried fig and prune qualities. You’d be surprised at how fresh, yet mature this wine drinks- all the wisdom and none of the wrinkles!

Coonawarra is renowned for its cabernet. To write off other varieties, though, would be simplistic. Some of the best wine from the region is shiraz, which is frequently overlooked in the search for the perfect cab sav. It's riesling is a surprise dark horse, too. Not to belittle Coonawarra cab either, but it's funny how often we get caught insisting that one variety is the best expression of a specific place, grown in a variable environment with so many factors at play. All we're saying is: don't miss the great wines that aren't the usual suspects. Coonawarra has quite a few amazing hands other than their trump card.
