Shiraz 2018 – Black Market Deal #35999
- Rich, full-bodied
- Margaret River
It seems to toe the line with absolute grace, the old river of Margaret. With the cooler, ocean breeze giving us the ever-growing-in-popularity peppery, lifted shiraz matching up with some serious body, palate weight and primary fruit gorgeousness. This single vineyard shiraz hails from a mofo favourite and although there’s plenty to go around, a deal like this won’t stick around for long. Intriguing mulberry and blackberry jump out of the glass after just a couple of swirls while the palate generates serious body, structure and non-fruit notes of soft vanilla and cedar, testament to its 15 months of bathing in French oak barriques. A soft and subtle peppery finish wraps up this little number in a nice neat little package which completes the gift from you… to you.
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.

Margaret River is as elusive as it is beautiful, such that you really need to visit to truly grasp its haunting beauty. Über-premium Cabernet, Chardonnay and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends grow here. 'Margies' only produces 3% of the country's grapes, but commands over 20% of its premium wine market, and hasn't had an off vintage since 2006. You start to realise how often this region is overlooked when you can list brands like Leeuwin, Cape Mentelle, Vasse Felix, and Voyager, not to mention Cullen, Pierro, Moss Wood, and Deep Woods. It's safe to say that it's time for a revisit.
