Blackjack is RED

Recognised at home in Australia and on the international stage, BlackJack Wines produce high quality red wines from Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot. Located in the Harcourt Valley of Bendigo in Central Victoria, the BlackJack vineyard is situation on the foothills of Mt. Alexander. Here the vines experience warm summers and cool nights as they are carefully nurtured through the process of crafting highly sought after wines.

In addition to a 5-star rating from the James Halliday Wine Companion, BlackJack Wines have won numerous gold and sliver medals from, among others, the Decanter World Wine Awards, The Boutique Wine Awards and the Asia Wine Awards.

Established in the late 1980s, Ian McKenzie and Ken Pollock create wines that embody the best of full-bodied Australian red wine. Ranked in the Top 50 for the 2012 Great Australian Shiraz Challenge, BlackJack wines are regularly recognised as a high performer.

James Halliday writes of the 2013 BlackJack Shiraz:

95 Points. In a word; beautiful. Rich but silken, awash with pure, dark berried flavour but admirably aided by savoury inputs and a sheer coating of creamy oak. That its (gently peppery) tannins moves in perfect formation through the back half of the wine is no small bonus
