Shiraz 2018 – Black Market Deal #40806
- Rich, full-bodied
- Eden Valley
We’re not messing around when we say that this shiraz comes from one of the Barossa’s (Eden being part of the Barossa) most exciting and progressive producers. The wine packs in all the drive, complexity and dark fruit you’d expect, yet also achieves compelling texture by way of fine tannins and layered secondary characteristics. Perhaps that’s the magic woven by the producer or perhaps that’s the result of a vineyard that was planted over 160 years ago. There’s the comfort of blackberry, plum and cedar of course, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find cinnamon, menthol and baking chocolate. This might just be the most elegant and sophisticated way to give your teeth that classic shiraz-purple tint.
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.

Next door to the Barossa Valley lies Eden Valley, a small yet highly significant Aussie region celebrated for their signature cool climate wines and impressive history. According to our sources, the first Eden Valley vineyard was planted in the early 1840s, and today there are just over 12 local wineries, both boutique and family-owned that continue to produce, exceptional vintages, including the famous Yalumba and Henschke. Renowned for their signature riesling and shiraz, the glorious region is a heavenly picking field for A-grade fruit. It comes as no surprise that many of Australia's winemakers source their grapes from the Eden Valley.
