The Black Shiraz, from South Australia's Berton Vineyards, is as muscular and full-blooded as its 'metal label' suggests. Dark in colour and full of liquorice and spicy blackberry flavours, this wine proves that big, concentrated Aussie wines don't need to cost big money. See also the Winemakers Reserve Black Shiraz.
