Shiraz 2018 – Black Market Deal #35861
- Textured, savoury
From our beloved Barossa comes another brilliant shiraz. This time - it’s from a small outfit who have a new-school approach to the region. Don’t get me wrong - there is Barossa power and Barossa fruit - but in a slightly lighter, fresher and more compact wine. There is a big nose of stewed fruit, cranberries and a bit of a savoury bone broth thing going on too. It’s medium-bodied with heaps of spice and power. The fruit spectrum is dark with blackberry and ripe plum, alongside cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s a deep and concentrated wine that will unfold and delight after an hour in a decanter, and I believe will age very well.

Confusingly, the Barossa Zone (aka 'Barossa') encompasses the Eden and Barossa Valley regions (the word 'Valley' being the key differentiator). If you don't want all your eggs in one basket, or all your shiraz from one region, this is one solid way to get some complexity of layers (of course, it's not all about shiraz - ha! Yes it is). Despite being about the same area, Eden Valley only has about 20% of the area under vine that its more famous neighbour manages. But it's no surprise that you'll find many of the big and boutique players sourcing their most expensive wines from a little higher than the Barossa Valley floor. So if you see a wine labelled as 'Barossa', you might just be looking at something that extra bit special.
