Curtis Black Market Shiraz 2021


This is not my favourite label, but that might simply be because the old eyes are not what they once were and the black on black makes it difficult to read. I may not be a fan of the label but I am most definitely a fan of the wine. Dark magenta, there is oodles of chocolate here, with mocha, coffee beans and more dark chocolate. A flick of vanilla, with soy and aniseed, there is already some early complexity. The wine has very good length and lingers with intent, I like this wine a lot. Well balanced, full of flavour and utterly delicious, drink over the next six to eight years and forget the label.
