Black Label Ward Shiraz Cabernet 2015

Sorry - this product is no longer available

Again, the great Aussie blend has come through with the goods. A deep red plum in colour, this wine simply invites you in.

Complex aromas of roasted capsicum, blackberry leaf and hints of menthol provide an intriguing nose. The palate is jam packed with rich, ripe fruit characters of black currants and ripe figs with just a hint of leafy greenness. The French oak tannins support and give length to a wine that finishes with rich mocha coffee and toast. Cellaring 7 – 10 years.

A bold wine needs something hearty. Whilst it doesn’t have a great name, a braised mutton stew with red wine and root vegetables in the slow cooker for 8 hours or so tastes pretty good.

Black Label Ginger-Rose Shiraz Magnum 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 Hamish Shiraz Magnum 2016

Showing spades of colour, this looks to be another cracking Hamish in a long line of Cellarhand favourites.
Time in oak gives this wine a savoury complexity on the nose. Dusty oak of fresh cut and charry woodfired timbers are the first to greet the nose. Slowly, but satisfyingly, the clean red fruits start to show up and intensify.
The palate is full bodied with mouth filling fruit intensity. The creamy oak and lavish tannins give amazing structure to the wine and a long and enduring finish to the palate. As always with Hamish, the 2016 has great cellaring potential but we think closer to 10 years than 15.
The eye of the fillet holds the greatest intensity of flavour and texture so that is our pairing. Cook it your way but medium rare is our suggestion.

Black Label Fireball Cabernet Merlot Magnum 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.

Black Label TPR Tempranillo 2019

An absolute cracking wine from the superb 2019 vintage here in the Hunter Valley and arguably one of our best TPR’s produced to date.
Youth is definitely on this wines side with fresh fruit aromas of figs and black currants presenting from the glass. This is further complexed by enticing black tea, toffee, nutmeg and cinnamon spice and with just a hint of black olive tapenade. Yes, there is a lot going on here.
The palate is seamless with no gaps, peaks or valleys from the front to the back palate. Generous to a fault and beautifully balanced with fine dusty tannins providing superb structure. There is a creamy richness to the wine that rounds out the finish and leaves the palate gasping for more. Drinking beautifully now but will continue to do so for another 10-15 years with amazing complexity.
A wine that will appreciate working with some decent flavours. Low and slow would work well. Either in a slow cooker or on your backyard smoker beef short ribs, deliciously sticky and melt in your mouth is the order of the day.
