Shiraz 2017 – Black Market Deal #36761
- Rich, full-bodied
- McLaren Vale
This one is for lovers of old-school, traditional, no-nonsense, well-made McLaren Vale shiraz. This ticks all the boxes for a top-notch drop too. It’s from an acclaimed single vineyard in the vale. The berries were hand picked in a sensational vintage from century old vines. It was given the royal treatment, with lashings of heavily charred, fine-grained French and American oak, for all that toasty, creamy, vanilla-ey goodness. It’s a very generous style, full of luscious fruit and muscular tannin. It’s the kind of wine that leaves you in no doubt - this is good, powerful stuff you’re drinking. Pull it out to treat yourself, and your friends (if they deserve it).

McLaren Vale is a region that lives in the shadow of the hype of the Barossa. While it has played on Shiraz as its drawcard, and continues to battle (quite rightly) with the supreme power of the Barossa, perhaps the most exciting wines from this region are its old vine Grenache and Mataro (Mourvedre/Monastrell - whatever you want to call it), and its more recent foray into Spanish and Italian varietals. Both the sun's warmth and the reliable salty afternoon gully breeze make the climate closer to Mediterranean than many other Aussie regions, and some of the Fiano, Vermentino, Tempranillo and Sangiovese from here are sublime (to name only a few). Awareness, proper consideration and sense of place are key attributes to the region's success, and its recent win against urbanisation reinforces the value of the viticultural region.
