We ran a deal from this boutique producer from Great Western a couple of years ago and we are nothing short of thrilled to welcome back their delicious shiraz. Great Western, or The Grampians, is a small region dominated by quality producers, making some of Victoria’s best shiraz. This wine is a great example of the region - medium-bodied with a beautiful nose of warm cooking spice, cinnamon and nutmeg. On the palate you will find ripe plums and bit of rum and raisin. Elegant and warming in a mellow, hello-winter kind of way.
Note: There is an error on the back label of this wine, that references another region by the same producer. Rest assured that we have confirmed with the producer and it is indeed their Great Western shiraz, not otherwise.
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.

The Grampians wine region is a tiny appellation, and has certainly earned its individuality since the first vines were planted there in 1862. Industry stalwarts such as Best's and Seppelt have stood since the gold rush era, and boast extensive underground cellars thanks to the miners' skills. The region is best known for its spicy, ageworthy Shiraz, but Best's also maintain a tiny patch of the oldest Pinot Meunier in the world - the 'Old Vines' Pinot Meunier makes sommeliers go nuts (P.S. their 'Young Vines' are still 30-40 years of age!).
