Shiraz 2015 – Black Market Deal #34901
- Rich, full-bodied
This shiraz is an absolute POWERHOUSE! A powerhouse of bold shiraz flavour and a wine that our mofos just can’t get enough of, from a producer who has become a solid favourite in the last year or so. The wine is deep and rich on the nose, with plum and a touch of eucalypt. We suggest decanting to get most of these complex aromas. On the palate, it’s full-bodied with drive and all the berries and plums you could want. The wine has seen a bit of new oak, both French and American and shows vanilla and spice. Now five-years-old, the fruit and oak are well integrated and the tannins are fine and abundant.
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.

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.
