Shiraz 2017 – Black Market Deal #35484
- Rich, full-bodied
- Eden Valley
This is big, bold Barossa shiraz, but with the elegance and minerality that comes from the sub-region of Eden Valley. Eden has granite and slate soil, which provides a more nuanced character to the wine. There’s some earthiness and smoked meatiness, and the fruit tends towards blackberry and cherry. Take all of that and combine it with the oaky undertones created by time in a mix of French and American barrels, and you have some supremely sophisticated Barossa shiraz.

It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Next door to the Barossa Valley lies Eden Valley, a small yet highly significant Aussie region celebrated for their signature cool climate wines and impressive history. According to our sources, the first Eden Valley vineyard was planted in the early 1840s, and today there are just over 12 local wineries, both boutique and family-owned that continue to produce, exceptional vintages, including the famous Yalumba and Henschke. Renowned for their signature riesling and shiraz, the glorious region is a heavenly picking field for A-grade fruit. It comes as no surprise that many of Australia's winemakers source their grapes from the Eden Valley.
