Black Label Ginger-Rose Shiraz 2014

From our Black Label range comes a serious crowd favourite. Marry that with a fantastic 2014 Vintage across all of NSW and you have an absolute showstopper of a wine in our Ginger-Rose Shiraz from the ACT.

Ruby red in colour and exhibiting aromas of intense red fruit, creamy vanilla oak and nuances of spiced fruit cake, there is a lot going on here. The palate is a complete surprise; medium bodied, delicate and silky with soft, fine tannins that are long on the finish. Like all cool climate wines, there is an underlying power that belies its origins. Cellar 8 – 10 years.

Something a bit more challenging to accompany this wine would be a char-grilled radicchio, provolone and red wine risotto.

Black Label TPR Tempranillo 2016

Our 2016 TPR appears quite ‘soft’ in the glass. It looks more like a traditional Rioja out of Spain than an Australian Tempranillo.
The aromas on the nose are a medley of savoury spice. Fresh ground nutmeg and powered cocoa lead the way with toasty oak in support. With time in the glass we see the fruit open up and begin to shine.
The palate is quite lively with rich, intense dark fruits, grippy tannins and soft acidity on the finish. There is a ‘meaty’ intensity about this wine giving it quite a savoury edge. Good in the cellar for around 5-7 years.
With those savoury flavours we suggest a dry aged, grass fed sirloin caramelised over hot coals. Pair with charred broccolini & crusty bread.

Black Label Ward Shiraz Cabernet 2014

The Shiraz Cabernet Blend is unique to Australian shores and you could say we invented it. Our 2014 Ward shows those lovely bass notes of Shiraz and High Hats of Cabernet Sauvignon that make this such an awesome style. Ripe Shiraz fruits are complimented by the rich herbaceous Cabernet characters of black currant and tomato leaf and are well integrated after 23 months in French and American oak.
The young tannins are long on the finish and the sweet vanilla oak characters add depth to the wine. Full bodied and well-structured this is definitely a wine for the cellar. We are thinking 10 years plus but maybe longer.

Black Label Fireball Cabernet Merlot 2014

The second release under this auspicious title and certainly doing justice to the name that has been bestowed upon it.

Full bodied and rich this wine is more like something off the ancient soils of Bordeaux than the cool climate hills of the Orange region in NSW. The aromas from the glass are incredibly rich and exhibit dark fruits, spicy French oak & a hint of mint from the Cabernet.

The palate is generously supported but fine dusty tannins that give length and excellent body to the wine. The fruits are elegant and with a great depth of complexity arriving from maturation in oak puncheons.

This wine is a big step up from previous releases and would be well paired to a rib eye fillet, bone on, seared, oven baked and served with a red wine jus and seasonal greens.

Regional Series Shiraz Canberra 2013

Patiently matured in old and new French Hogsheads and Puncheons we want the oak to support, not dominate. The fruit within the matrix of this wine is both delicate and pure.

White pepper, cinnamon and clove all play a role whilst the palate remains medium bodied with great texture and structure. The sweet mid palate fruits show richness and freshness making this a very easy and approachable wine.

We think the flavours and structure of our ACT Shiraz make this the perfect accompaniment to duck. Duck doesn’t have to be an extravagant confit every time so for this wine we suggest a well-balanced duck ragu served with pappardelle.
