Hugh Hamilton Black Ops Shiraz Saperavi 750ml

*This product is delivered ex winery.
My hunch was that the most ancient grape on the planet, Saperavi, would make for a unique union with McLaren Vale’s prized Shiraz. The elixir was covertly blended and like other ‘black operations’ a Pandora’s box of flavour was opened. A wine for KGB, CIA and civilians. Seek & embrace the unusual. From that irrefutable source of Gospel Truth: Wikipedia… “A black operation or black op is a covert operation typically involving activities that are highly clandestine and often outside of standard military protocol or even against the law.” Under these conditions, if you think you’re going to get lots of “Background” information, think again, Sunshine… 70% Shiraz | 30% Saperavi
Tasting Notes

A potent plume of dark fruits, black tea and roast beets. Blood, violets, iron and bitumen. Plums and coal smoke. Monolithic in its band of fruit and tannin. Exceptionally rich and full, with phenomenal depth and drive.
