Shiraz 2015 – Black Market Deal #39261
- Rich, full-bodied
This is some of the best Heathcote shiraz we’ve ever had here. It comes off a small block of a high-density vineyard planted by the region’s most revered viticulturist. After one year in a mix of American and French hogheads, the finished wine is sent to bottle (a big heavy one at that). We’re talking pure velvet in a glass. Luxurious, silky, rich and layered with dark fruits, chocolate, mocha and herbs. Subtle earthiness and the finest line of tannin round it out. Good luck not finishing the bottle. We failed.
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.
“This vineyard was planted by arguably the top viticulturist in the region. It comes from a tiny section of that vineyard, one that provides the best combination of concentration, complexity and ageability. This is absolutely a Heathcote shiraz for the ages.”
Full price $90.00 from the producer.

There are two distinct styles of Heathcote wine, which can get confusing. There's Wild Duck Creek Duck Muck at the giant end of the spectrum for Greenock Creek lovers (I'm talking 17.5% alcohol!). And then there's Jasper Hill, Heathcote Estate, Chalmers' new Heathcote outfit and some new alternative varieties that seem to be making it into the best weird and wonderful natural wines in the country. Think Shiraz here traditionally, but don't be afraid to try the Nebbiolo, Fiano and Lagrein from painstakingly selected vineyards. They're refreshingly delicious.
