We love a Black Operation...
You don’t need to know much, other than the ‘Black Ops’ side of this wine is the blending of Australia’s great red grape, Shiraz, with that of Georgia (the former Soviet republic): Saperavi. It’s a Dark Art, blending, and in this case it has produced something rare and special. When was it done? Shortly before bottling, after the wines had been matured in barrel. Hugh wanted to be sure they’d work as a team, and not assassinate each other as soon as he turned his back.
Every family has a black sheep. Hugh Hamilton wines happen to have more than one. Hugh's McLaren Vale wine family dynasty stretches back 180 years, when Hugh's great-great grandfather planted Australia's first grapes (thank goodness). Now Hugh is master of a most reprobate range of varieties from the classics to the more eclectic. When it comes to tasting these wines, you can expect to enjoy the difference.
