Shiraz 2015 – Black Market Deal #39460
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
This is the big fella right here. You’ll need two hands to lift and pour this inky beast. We’re journeying into the realm of collectible Barossa shiraz now. One block, hand-picked, fermented with wild yeast, basket-pressed then sent to new French oak barriques for two years. Most years this isn’t even released. Lesser wines wouldn’t be able to handle the oak and alcohol contained within, but there’s so much power and drive to the fruit that it all sits neatly in place, behaving itself quite well. Complexity in droves of course: violet, tobacco, chocolate, mocha, cassis, clove, fig, vanilla, and on and on and on. Six years into its life and it’s still a youngster, certainly a thrill to drink but hinting at so much more. Your children will be old and grey before this shiraz is past its prime. No rush to drink it, but you’ll need to rush to order as it’ll be gone before you know it.

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
