AGE EPICURE WINE OF THE WEEK
Aug 20, 2008

From well-regarded Bendigo vineyard Blackjack, this wine is terrific value for a second label. Made from non-estate shiraz grapes grown in a couple of very good Bendigo vineyards,it's an inky young wine,dense and deeply coloured,with high-toned, very concentrated blackberry and spice aromas.Subtle hints of earth and vaguely aniseedy complexities adds dimension,and the richly flavoured,smooth palate has intensity,but it's not too heavy. Soft,ripe tannins give lip-smacking balance.An honest regional red that's great buying.
