From the Winery
Utilising premium fruit from eminent wine regions in South Australia, The Black Chook struts affordable wines to be enjoyed and adored, shared and celebrated! Careful vineyard selection teamed with exceptional winemaking and an emphasis on consistent varietal expression hatches wines with approachability generosity and character that really are something to cluck about.
Predominantly 3-5 year old Shiraz, aged in old French oak barrels showing wonderful smooth integrated fruit and a rich weighty texture across the palate. This is blended with a touch of younger vintage Shiraz bringing ripe juicy fruit characters to the finished product.
Fruit for the Sparkling Shiraz is sourced predominantly from premium grape growing regions in South Australia; namely McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek. Situated approximately 40km south of Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, McLaren Vale has a Mediterranean climate. With winter dominant rainfall, low humidity and long warm summers that are tempered by the proximity to the Gulf St. Vincent, McLaren Vale has one of the most consistent climates in which to grow premium wine grapes.
Located on the floodplains of the Angas and Bremer River about 70km south of Adelaide, Langhorne Creek is one of the older wine growing regions in Australia with the first vines planted in the 1850’s.
This non vintage wine sparkles to the tune of a well balanced blend. The result being a rich, luscious Sparkling Shiraz that is well balanced and destined to compliment pork and turkey or any occasion to celebrate!
