The Black Craft Shiraz 2019

£13.49 GBP

This Shiraz is sourced from the finest available vineyard sites across the premium Northern Barossa Valley including for the most part Greenock, Western Ridge and Ebenezer. Aged 11 months in a variety of oaks, all American and French, new and old, around 35% new. All oaks were AP John, Barossa coopered. As usual with Magpie, it was fermented in open fermenters. They don’t set the blades too close together during crushing so a fair bit of whole berry in the ferment which gives the wine generous fruit and soft tannins.

A compelling, dark and rich chocolatey beast. A blend unique to Boutinot, this is a classic Barossa Shiraz with intense savoury flavours of thick blackberry compote, black pepper and typical iron-rich beefy flavours. Not a hint of jam here, no sweetness, this is serious Shiraz for grown-ups with balanced acidity, a touch of cocao powder in the finish and tremendous length.

As the name implies, black is the key - anything chargrilled would be superb here, so think griddle pans and barbecues!

Beautiful!

This was a recommendation as my usual was out of stock. Just a beautiful red wine. Dark cherry, blackberry, but with a smokey edge. This is now my usual :)

Lovely glass of wine

When Henry did a blind tasting on this he seemed to notice all manor of flavours which I certainly did not notice, even though I drunk 2/3rds of a whole bottle and he only had a few sips!! But what I can say is I loved every drop.
