Shiraz 2016 – Black Market Deal #37577
- Textured, savoury
A winery that is now in their 4th generation of vignerons, producing great wines, from one of the greatest regions in South Australia - sounds good to me. When the nights start to cool, and the sun goes down a little sooner than what what is has been, this wine is sure to warm up your frosty toes. A rich and ripe shiraz, with plum fruit, dark black cherries, gentle tannins and toasty oak and vanilla. No wonder this wine was awarded gold medal after gold medal. Get this in your glass and you’ll feel like you won first prize.

Coonawarra is renowned for its cabernet. To write off other varieties, though, would be simplistic. Some of the best wine from the region is shiraz, which is frequently overlooked in the search for the perfect cab sav. It's riesling is a surprise dark horse, too. Not to belittle Coonawarra cab either, but it's funny how often we get caught insisting that one variety is the best expression of a specific place, grown in a variable environment with so many factors at play. All we're saying is: don't miss the great wines that aren't the usual suspects. Coonawarra has quite a few amazing hands other than their trump card.
