Cracka Review

The Black Chook range continues to offer superb drinking at the price and this Shiraz from the McLaren Vale is just what you’ve come to expect from the region. It’s made by Ben Riggs who is well versed when it comes to Shiraz from this part of the world and a man who always turns out excellent interpretations of Shiraz. This version is blended with Viognier so expect lifted aromatics of apricot and spice before a smooth palate of intense Shiraz fruit.

Winemaker's Notes

Utilising premium fruit from eminent wine regions in South Australia, The Black Chook struts affordable wines to be enjoyed and adored, shared and celebrated! Since first vintage in 2003, Black Chook Shiraz has scored an uninterrupted run of 90+ points internationally recognised reviews and enjoys great success in Australia, Canada and USA.

Careful vineyard selection teamed with exceptional winemaking and an emphasis on consistent varietal expression hatches wines with approachability generosity and character that really are something to cluck about.

Vinification: The Shiraz grapes are co-fermented with a small amount of Viognier skins which adds a vibrant perfumed aroma and at the same time intensifies the deep rich colour and supple tannins.

Aroma: The nose is vibrant and lifted with red berry fruits, plums and hints of anise and vanillin spice.

Palate: Generously loaded with black fruits, the palate is balanced by fine, supple tannins and sweet spice. A soft, round Shiraz with a satisfying fruit length.

Alc/vol: 14.5%
