Black Flag Winemakers Shiraz Touriga 2018

This offering was made from Shiraz parcels sourced from some of the very best plots in the Limestone Coast and McLaren Vale lending silky dark fruits and spice, with a small proportion of Touriga (about 10%) from Willunga that adds a savoury complexity. Although Touriga is often associated with Portugal, the Australians were producing wines from this grape long before Shiraz gained traction. The two grapes are finally making an impressive union.

About Black Flag Winemakers

A collaboration between Virgin Wines in the UK and ourselves, Black Flag has enabled the micro batch, innovative and carefree approach of The 5OS Project to spread its wings beyond our stores. Whilst not technically for sale outside of the UK, we’ve held back a few cases here and there to showcase/show off.

This is essentially our ‘Home Brand’. We make these wines ourselves and farm out others to mates with the intention to create a range of wines that have heaps of drinkability but not at the expense of varietal, regional and vintage characteristics. They should also look the part, embracing the talent of the respective artists whilst encouraging them to find their own beat.

Aromatics: Dark fruits and aniseed
Palate: Silky with some modern funk adding another layer of complexity
Finish: Ripe dark fruits to finish
Cellaring: Will offer more intrigue after a couple of years, but it's certainly ready now
