Black Label Shiraz
The Alkoomi Black Label 2020 Shiraz has lifted aromas of violets, black cherries and peppery spices on the nose.
Rich flavours of black cherry and dark chocolate on the medium bodied palate with layers of sugary tannins interwoven with pepper and bright freshness.
Ready to enjoy now, although will gain complexity over the next five to eight years with careful cellaring.
A wine of GOLD medal standard.

95-96 Outstanding. Wines of gold medal standard
Co-fermented with 'a bit' of viognier, and matured in French oak (20% new). Silky, floral, velvety, robust, dusty, ripe and spiced. All very good things here, and unbelievably wrapped up in $28 and smart packaging. The Alkoomi Black label range is a bit of a marvel. Blood plum, mulberry, blackberry and raspberry with lashings of salted licorice, ferrous and lavendar. Another ripping wine here – bravo team Cherry.
