2017 Blackjack Block 6 Shiraz
Crimson red colour. Lifted red berries and cherry aromas, with spice notes.
The palate is a complex amalgam of red berries, morello cherry and plum flavours.
Lively acidity and beautifully integrated spicy French oak tannins are the pillars of a long and sustained finish. One for the cellar. It will bring rewards.
Delicious with a classic veal Osso Bucco

“… smooth and bold as ever but it’s minus any alcohol heat. It remains a hearty style but its silken presentation makes it dangerously easy to drink. Coal, blackberry, sweet plum and earth-like flavours blend with vanilla and peppercorn. It’s convincing. It’s enjoyable, on the right night, it’s just the ticket.” Drink: 2019-2018 92 Points
