Shiraz Blend 2017 - Black Market Deal #32102
- Textured, savoury
- Southern Fleurieu
“This South Australian producer is consistently one of my favourites. And this one in particular is fan-bloody-tastic!” – John, Head of Buying
“I cannot get this wine out of my mind! From the almost Mediterranean climate of the Fleurieu Peninsula, but with a cooler 2017 vintage, it is drinking better than ever, fitting any situation from a cheeky red on a hot afternoon to lounging by the fire on a stormy night. Medium-to-full-bodied, rich, juicy dark fruit with with a fantastic savoury finish. European in style, but from the good old classic SA, let this little beauty haunt your dreams as it has mine!” – Patrick, Wine Dealer
2017 wines of the region are marked by a medium bodied liveliness that’s quite remarkable. This is no different. On display are still the juicy plums and warming spices you’d expect from a South Aussie, but there’s an extra gear of drive that it kicks into deftly. There’s room for cellaring here, with today’s brightness promising tomorrow’s complexity. A 12 month stint in 300 litre hogsheads only enhances that classic flavour with an extra dash of depth. Fan-bloody-tastic!
Just a note, mofos, that the RRPs displayed on the Halliday Wine Companion website are actually wrong. We’ve been told that they’re being updated to match ours (from the winery) soon, though. We just wanted to give you a heads-up in case there was any confusion!
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.
