Blackjack Major's Line Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2008 Vintage) says
The Major's Line name is a tribute to Major Thomas Micthell, who spent some time describing the area occupied by Blackjack today. This is a wine made with purchased grapes from a singe vineyard at Faraday. The nose carries ripe plum and cherry aromas, assertive woody notes and a regional Aussie bush element. The palate's supple and ripe, with glossy blackberry flavour and toasty oak sailing through. Tannins are smooth and easygoing. Drink up.

The 2004 was the first release and it was a beauty. It's made from grapes grown on a neighbouring property to Blackjack itself and, while it was probably an experiment at first, it has been such a success that they're planning to keep going with it. Yay! We really like this. It has a barbecue sauciness about it, with spice, pepper and smoke over blackberried, plummy fruit flavours. There's a bit of nutty oak, but it's fresh and medium-bodied and immensely appealing. It might not be the most impressive wine in the pack, but it's right up there as one of the most drinkable.

The 2004 was the first release and it was a beauty too. It's made from grapes grown on a neighbouring property to Blackjack itself. It's a wine to hunt down. 2005 RELEASE The Blackjack boys have really hit their straps. This is noice, different, unusual - and deadset yum. Spicy, savoury, minty, peppery and plummy, the whole lot clubbed into a seductive package. DRINK 2008-2015.
