Smalltown Vineyards (formerly Magpie Estate) 'The Black Craft' Shiraz
This product is currently sold out.
We think this is perhaps our most compelling Australian Shiraz and probably our best value! The Magpie Estate 'The Black Craft' Shiraz is 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, fine velvety tannins and tremendous length. As the name implies, black is the key - anything chargrilled would be superb here so think griddle pans and barbecues!
