Make no mistake, this is bloody good stuff. Moreishly medium bodied and laden with boisterous black-fruited flavour, that goes down disarmingly easily. So easily, in fact, it’s easy to miss the incredible complexity on offer as you reach to pour yourself yet another glass. Our advice? Take your time and savour the flavour. You will be well rewarded.
Just a note, mofos, that the RRPs displayed on the Halliday Wine Companion website are actually wrong. We’ve been told that they’re being updated to match ours (from the winery) soon, though. We just wanted to give you a heads-up in case there was any confusion!
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 rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
Classic Beef Carpaccio
- 250g piece best-quality beef fillet, trimmed
- 2 tablespoons truffle oil or extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
- 1/2 cup (40g) shaved parmesan
- Wild rocket leaves and lemon wedges, to serve
- 1. Enclose the beef tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for 30 minutes (this will make it easier to thinly slice).
- 2. Unwrap the beef and very thinly slice, using a sharp knife. Place the slices of beef between sheets of plastic wrap and flatten them out with a rolling pin.
- 3. Arrange 4 or 5 slices of beef on each serving plate and drizzle with oil. Season well with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, then scatter with pine nuts, chives and shaved parmesan. Serve with rocket leaves and lemon wedges.
