2019 Blackjack Block 6 Shiraz - Members

Tasting Note:

Blackjack Vineyards is situated on an easterly slope, in the old Apple and Pear growing district of the Harcourt Valley on the foothills of Mt.Alexander. Although just south of Bendigo, the climate is considerably cooler, and normally blessed with “Indian Summer” autumns – cool night and warm clear day- allowing the grapes to slowly ripen. The soil is mostly very old, and not overly fertile, granitic soils. The vineyard is hand pruned and hand-harvested. The Block 6 Shiraz block was planted in 1998.

The Wine

Fermented in traditional open fermenters, hand plunged and aged in small French oak barriques for 22 months.

Crimson red colour. Clean and defined fresh summer berry aromas on the nose. Spice as well.

Palate is crisp, highlighting a core nucleus of dark fruits, plum; liquorice and star anise.

A savouriness adds complexity and depth. Fine grape and French oak tannins add backbone.

In a word: Elegant.

Delicious with a classic veal Osso Bucco

Suggested cellaring: 4-10 years
