Shiraz 2017 – Black Market Deal #34873
- Textured, savoury
Heathcote is among Australia’s top regions for shiraz with its famous Cambrian soils and sunshine that sees the variety thrive and develop into intense and rich little grapes of goodness. This three-year-old wine is simply delicious. It charges from the glass with a combo of plums, spice and chocolate aromas, and is followed by classic Heathcote pepper on the palate. A glorious wine at a great price, that you can crack every weekday night with your cuisine of choice.
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.

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.
