We’ve got a mate down in SA who’s so very versatile. He makes wines from vineyards across the state and always delivers the goods. Here’s a shiraz off a single block in Langhorne Creek that’s silky smooth with violets and plum on the nose, trailed by blackberry, spice and a bit of tannin on the palate. It’s plump and juicy, easy to drink, and laced with enough acidity to complement an array of dishes. And if you are left with any doubt, have a glance at its trophy cabinet. Stunning!
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.

With vines and wines dating from the 1800s, Langhorne Creek is an historic wine region, underrated for its earthy, voluminous reds. Dry and warm, perhaps it's even yet to see its best with some of the newer varieties just starting to come on. Metala, Bleasdale, even Wolf Blass have seen (and continue to see) some great fruit from here, used either in single region reds, or to give top end multi-regional blends their heart and depth. The producers from this region are some of the nicest people around, so next time you're in the region remember to pop in and tell them 'hey, I remember you from such Vinomofo hits as...'
