For those of you in the wine-drinking world who think ‘big is beautiful’, this is the Shiraz you’re looking for. Ripe plum and blackberry fruit is beautifully integrated with supportive vanillan oak on the nose. The palate is plush and voluptuous - all juicy fruit and textured with gentle tannins and depth of flavour that adds plenty of length. As well as the usual accolades, this rates a solid 9.5 on the lip-staining scale - a universal measurement that winemakers use as a key indicator of big, juicy South Aussie Shiraz. Boom!
Part of our Women in Wine collection
This wine is part of our Women in Wine collection. We are committed to ALWAYS having wines available that are made by women. We already support so many women in the industry but we want to make this much more transparent and visible for our mofos. We want to make a real and lasting impact in an industry that is sadly still dominated by men. And this is the first step. Here’s to our Women in Wine!
This one has a female winemaker, but because it’s a Black Market wine we’re sworn to secrecy. She’s a deadset legend, though.
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.
Full price $42.00 from the winery on 7 November 2019.

Padthaway is home to some of the most unique and groovy wines in South Australia. The region was given the 'all clear' by the CSIRO in 1944, vineyards were planed by Seppelt in 1964 (Not sure why it took them 20 years to get onboard) and these days has more than 4,000 hectares of vineyards planted. The main varieties to be grown are Shiraz, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Although these are the main players, the region's rich soil, underground water supply and Mediterranean climate allow for other varieties such as Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Pinot Noir to be grown.
