Shiraz 2019 – Black Market Deal #42206
- Rich, full-bodied
This winery have risen to great heights, becoming one of the largest family-owned estates in the region. Picking fruit from vineyards in the Barossa and Eden Valleys, you can always expect the balance of their wines to be fantastically executed. Varietal expression is right at the front here, with all the great hallmarks of shiraz, from deep plummy fruit, gentle lifted acidity, and a whack of black pepper on the finish. Time in American oak gives this wine that vanilla kick that we love to see in our South Aussie reds. It’s all about the generosity, and true Barossa character.

Confusingly, the Barossa Zone (aka 'Barossa') encompasses the Eden and Barossa Valley regions (the word 'Valley' being the key differentiator). If you don't want all your eggs in one basket, or all your shiraz from one region, this is one solid way to get some complexity of layers (of course, it's not all about shiraz - ha! Yes it is). Despite being about the same area, Eden Valley only has about 20% of the area under vine that its more famous neighbour manages. But it's no surprise that you'll find many of the big and boutique players sourcing their most expensive wines from a little higher than the Barossa Valley floor. So if you see a wine labelled as 'Barossa', you might just be looking at something that extra bit special.
