Small Gully
'Mr. Black's Concoction'
Shiraz
Barossa Valley

Selected from some of the sections of Darren's vineyards that ripen late, these grapes produce a wine that is lush and drinkable showing ripe Barossa Shiraz characters and exhibiting intense middle palate fruit sweetness.

Deep red. Smoky black raspberry and cherry on the nose, with baking spices and cracked pepper adding energy. Silky and medium-bodied, with raspberry and blackcurrant fruit flavors, supple tannins and good back-end lift. This already offers good complexity and suave texture.
