Shiraz Tempranillo 2017 – Black Market Deal #35717
- Medium bodied
- Clare Valley
Shiraz is undoubtably our national grape, and although it is THE BEST, it can be even better with a little help from another variety. A splash of viognier or an addition of grenache can work wonders. In this case, it’s the fresh and fruity tempranillo adding a bit of something to our beloved shiraz. This wine is all the better for the addition and James Halliday thought so too, giving it 94 points! Expect a medium body with heaps of cherries, plums and a bit of spice. A food-friendly, versatile and delicious wine.

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
