BlackJack Vineyard Block 6 Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
Backed by tight, newish oak, this terrific Bendigo shiraz reveals a dark, cedary and faintly meaty bouquet laced with minty aromas of dark berries, plums and black pepper. It's long, linear and very smooth, with a layered presence of pure, vibrant and concentrated fruit underpinned by fine, pliant tannins, finishing with fresh acids and a hint of minerality.

Lovely bright-red and dark berries here, a mere hint of leafy Central Victorian bushland, oak adding some sweetness to the mix, and a gently creamy edge too. The palate has a really gentle berry and plum flavour, some very smooth tannins, bright and ripe, good length and not too heavy. Very satisfying wine.

Vibrant purple-crimson; rich and ripe aromas and flavours; abundant plum and black berry fruit is backed by a twitch of dark chocolate, ripe tannins and well-balanced oak.

This is an estate wine produced from a specific block of vines. Part of the fascination of winegrowing is that the same vines, grown only metres apart, can produce different flavours. In very nice shape. Full of spicy, juicy, raisiny character - all delivered in super-smooth form. It tastes of cherries and aniseed too. Maybe even a slight smokiness, and a ripe, peppery, characterful finish. You can cellar this, but it will be at its most delicious as a young wine.

Smooth, supple, even and long, it will impress nearly all red wine drinkers every time.

slightly more complex aromas than the varietal, and despite much lower alcohol, has more texture, and attractive red and black berry fruits.

Slightly more plush and lush than the Bendigo Shiraz, also veering more to blackberry/black fruits; fine tannins and good oak.

A couple of years ago the folks at Blackjack noticed that Block 6 of their vineyard produces different flavours to the rest of the vineyards. They then decided to bottle it separately - a great move. 2005 RELEASE It's such a lively, flavoursome wine that it's almost impossible not to like it. Full vibrant acidity, silken plums, mint, chocolate and pepper, the spiciness of it very much second fiddle to the pure rich darkness of it. A bottle of this with roast meat before settling in to watch the footy - the word 'schtonking!' comes to mind, DRINK 2008-2015.

More colour and more convincing than the varietal, albeit still in a light to medium-bodied, elegant spectrum; attractive black cherry fruit and fine tannins.

Medium-bodied; black fruits, chocolate and spice supported by fine tannins; excellent structure and length.
