Blackjack Block 6 Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Bendigo Victoria
Blackjack has claimed the eminent M.Chapoutier Trophy for Best Shiraz at the prestigious Le Concours des Vinson on no fewer than three occasions. Block 6 is a superior parcel of distinguished vines, renowned within the Bendigo district for producing a very high quality, intensely fruit driven Shiraz. Whilst directly adjacent to the original Blackjack plantings, Block 6 features a unique soil profile and a different clone. Block 6 always displays savoury Rhone structure and style, as opposed to the identifiably Aussie genre of Shiraz produced by Blackjack Vineyard.
Available in cartons of six

Blackjack are just south of Bendigo, on an easterly slope, in the old fruit growing district of Harcourt Valley at the foothills of Mt. Alexander. The microclimate of this small boutique winery is considerably cooler than other vineyards, ablessed by Indian summers, cool nights and warm clear days, allowing the grapes to slowly ripen. Soils are very old, unfertile granites, although part of Block 6 is on richer sandstone gravels. The hand husbanded, hand picked vines on Block 6 were planted in 1998 and are a different clone to the original Shiraz stock. Vinified in traditional open fermenters, hand plunged and aged in French oak barriques for twenty two months, bottled unfined after minimal filtration.
Ruby red, purple hues. Dark berry and cherry aromas, black currants, nutmeg and mixed spice, complex festive pudding notes. In grand central Victorian styling, the palate shows abundant spice and pepper as well as fully ripe berry fruits, lovely rounded mouthfeel and texture, subtle oak in support. Superb balance of crisp peppery acids and fine oak tannins, a very persistent, remarkably long and lingering finish.
