Shiraz 2017 – Black Market Deal #37936
- Rich, full-bodied
This premium South Aussie shiraz is everything you’d expect from the style and more. AND, in this case, more is definitely more! More fruit, more oak, more flavour and more power! If you like them big, then get in line.
The vineyards are located in McLaren Vale and Padthaway, where much of the country’s best shiraz grows. The wine is full of plums, blackberries and puckering cranberries. This vibrant fruit is supported by oaky nuances from nearly two years in new French oak. There’s a luscious vanilla note and soft tannins that are well integrated into the fruit. This is all wrapped up in the most premium of packaging, adding to the already great experience.
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.

Padthaway is home to some of the most unique and groovy wines in South Australia. The region was given the 'all clear' by the CSIRO in 1944, vineyards were planed by Seppelt in 1964 (Not sure why it took them 20 years to get onboard) and these days has more than 4,000 hectares of vineyards planted. The main varieties to be grown are Shiraz, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Although these are the main players, the region's rich soil, underground water supply and Mediterranean climate allow for other varieties such as Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Pinot Noir to be grown.
