Shiraz 2018 – Black Market Deal #35545
- Rich, full-bodied
- Adelaide Hills
I’m not sure if I’d pick this as an Adelaide Hills wine in a blind tasting. It has the elegance and freshness that speak of the region, but it’s also dark and concentrated with a full, plush palate. It sits at the lower end of full-bodied and has ripe power from the fruit and abundant, fine tannins. It has seen time in a combination of French and American oak and is all the better for it. Plums and berries nestle in with spice and a touch of vanilla. There’s more spice and caramel on the finish. A super-solid wine that will look better and better as it opens up over a few days, if you have the patience!

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
