Shiraz 2018 - Black Market Deal #35962
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
This delicious shiraz comes from a family-owned, Barossa Valley winery, who have been working as growers and makers for the last 40 years. We sold the 2017, which everyone loved, and are stoked to have the 2018 in stock - though we predict it will not last long!
This particular wine is from one of the celebrated subregions of Barossa that you’ll be familiar with when you see the bottle. As for the wine, after the grapes are picked at perfect ripeness and fermented to dryness, the wine the spends a couple of years in new and seasoned French oak barrels. The resulting wine is dark and plummy wine, with blueberries, liquorice spice and a touch of pepper on the nose. The palate is full of fine tannins and rich red fruits like cherries and plums.

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
