Silkman Wines Hunter Valley Shiraz

Husband and wife winemaking duo of Liz Jackson and Shaun Silkman of First Creek fame have joined forces to launch their own label, drawing on some of the best sites of First Creek Winemaker’s Reserve and some others beyond. From a single block of the Black Cluster vineyard, this is a wine with plenty of fruit concentration coiled into its folds. A core of black plum and dark berry compote fruit defines a well-structured shiraz, layered with black liquorice, coal dust and firm, finely textured tannins. Built for the long-run, it will benefit from time for tannins to soften and integrate. Best price direct.
