Shiraz 2013 – Black Market Deal #38103
- Rich, full-bodied
- Hunter Valley
Sourced from a single vineyard in the higher altitudes of the Hunter Valley, this is a gorgeous shiraz in gorgeous packaging. Low yields, volcanic soil and a strong vintage all played their part here. The wine spent 18 months in a mix of French and American oak. And since this is the producer’s top of the range, only the best of the barrels made it into the final bottling. The nose is of raspberries, blueberries, mocha and vanilla, and the palate adds cherry, plum, cedar and smoked meats. This is an exceedingly complex Hunter shiraz with eight years already behind it and another 10-15 years of good drinking left.

The Hunter Valley is one of the brightest jewels in Australia's vinous crown. Not only does the region produce some of the best Shiraz and alternative reds in the country, but it has a style of white unique in the world of wine: Hunter Semillon. This is the White Burgundy of Australia in more ways than one, and even used to be labelled as such in the early days. No other place can produce such intense, low alcohol, seemingly light Semillons that blossom with age into full-bodied, massively complex wines that can age for decades. Producers the likes of Tyrrell's and Brokenwood take Hunter to new heights, year upon year.
