Shiraz 2018 – Black Market Deal #38702
- Rich, full-bodied
- McLaren Vale
Cue the lights, cue the music, draw the curtain...this might be the biggest, baddest offer we’ve ever had at the ‘Fo! For lovers of take-no-prisoners, built-to-last, all-guns-blazing McLaren Vale shiraz, this is the one. Just got that dream job? Crack a bottle. Just had a baby? Crack a bottle. Just got married? Crack a bottle. This is a ‘life’s special moments’ kind of wine. Of course we can’t tell you the producer, but you’ll know ‘em. And this is their tip-top shiraz, one they don’t even make every year...only in the best vintages. It’s dense and rich with aromas of cherries, cranberries and tobacco. There’s even hints of stone fruits for added complexity. On the palate, the fruit is dark cherry and there’s secondary notes to ponder of licorice, anise and cloves. And that finish, it just goes on and on and on. We’re thanking our lucky stars we got our hands on this wine and you will be too.

McLaren Vale is a region that lives in the shadow of the hype of the Barossa. While it has played on Shiraz as its drawcard, and continues to battle (quite rightly) with the supreme power of the Barossa, perhaps the most exciting wines from this region are its old vine Grenache and Mataro (Mourvedre/Monastrell - whatever you want to call it), and its more recent foray into Spanish and Italian varietals. Both the sun's warmth and the reliable salty afternoon gully breeze make the climate closer to Mediterranean than many other Aussie regions, and some of the Fiano, Vermentino, Tempranillo and Sangiovese from here are sublime (to name only a few). Awareness, proper consideration and sense of place are key attributes to the region's success, and its recent win against urbanisation reinforces the value of the viticultural region.
