Shiraz 2019 – Black Market Deal #39726
- Medium bodied
- Hunter Valley
2019 was an extremely dry year in the Hunter. Not necessarily good news for the stress levels of winemakers, but it did lead to fantastic concentration and acidity in the wines. This shiraz is blended from two different blocks in a single vineyard, both harvested at optimum ripeness. Twelve months in 35% new French oak added some lovely structure and layering to an already stellar wine. It’s quite savoury, spicy and full, finishing with fine grained tannins and great length. If Hunter shiraz is your thing, then this wine is a must have at the table.
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.

The Hunter Valley is one of the brightest jewels in Australia's vinous crown. Not only does the region produce some of the best Shiraz and alternative reds in the country, but it has a style of white unique in the world of wine: Hunter Semillon. This is the White Burgundy of Australia in more ways than one, and even used to be labelled as such in the early days. No other place can produce such intense, low alcohol, seemingly light Semillons that blossom with age into full-bodied, massively complex wines that can age for decades. Producers the likes of Tyrrell's and Brokenwood take Hunter to new heights, year upon year.
