Shiraz 2016 – Black Market Deal #38107
- Rich, full-bodied
Lovers of big, bold South Aussie shiraz can tell you, that just around the corner from Coonawara lies the region of Padthaway. Where cab shines in Coonawarra, shiraz is the star of Padthaway. We’ve seen a few vintages of this wine, all delicious and consistent in style, the 2016 is a touch moodier with dark fruit, wrapped up in a bold palate.
First, you’ll find a touch of reduction on the nose, the blows off after a couple of swirls and reveals plums, blackberries and an alluring mocha note. It’s full and rich on the palate, with blood plums, cherries and spice. The wine is excellent value and delivers all of the power and flavour that SA shiraz is famous for.

Padthaway is home to some of the most unique and groovy wines in South Australia. The region was given the 'all clear' by the CSIRO in 1944, vineyards were planed by Seppelt in 1964 (Not sure why it took them 20 years to get onboard) and these days has more than 4,000 hectares of vineyards planted. The main varieties to be grown are Shiraz, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Although these are the main players, the region's rich soil, underground water supply and Mediterranean climate allow for other varieties such as Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Pinot Noir to be grown.
