Shiraz 2017 – Black Market Deal #34996
- Textured, savoury
- Clare Valley
It’s Clare Valley shiraz from a crew that was born and bred in the region before starting their own label over twenty years ago. They know the dirt and the climate better than almost anyone. And the wine is inky black in the glass, exploding with dark chocolate, blackberry and interlaced tannins on the palate. Deciding to buy Clare shiraz ain’t rocket science...if you like the style, you’ll love this.
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.
““But Reino, I only drink Barossa Shiraz” I hear you say. Yes, everyone knows Clare Valley for riesling, but these guys just manage to cram so much body and flavour into their reds that even Barossa drinkers are happy. It’s dense, silky and delicious. I’ll “Happiness-Guarantee” that you’ll thank me for introducing you to this underrated region.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
