Shiraz 2019 – Black Market Deal #41257
- Rich, full-bodied
- McLaren Vale
We’re all about value for money as our greatest goal mofo, so when this one landed in our laps we didn’t have to think twice about it. It could be considered a bargain at its full retail, so there’s only winning to be had here. This particular wine from our producer is one that strives to be the best it can be, only made in years where the fruit receives an A+ report card. Brimming with intensity of fruit, and brought into line with some serious saline plum and abundant spice from the 15 month oak treatment. Blueberry, dark cherry and chocolate seem to be buoyant from the glass, and likewise on the palate. The finish seems effortlessly long, melting onto the tongue as though it always belonged there.
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.
Part of our Women in Wine Collection
We are committed to ALWAYS having wines available that are made by women. In an industry that’s still dominated by men, we believe in celebrating the incredible work women are doing. Here’s to our Women in Wine!
This one has a female winemaker, but because it’s a Black Market wine we’re sworn to secrecy. She’s a deadset legend, though.
Full price $85.00 from the producer.

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.
