2019 Nicks Secret UC Shiraz
It’s back! – the follow up vintage of our hugely successful Secret UC Shiraz and its better than ever. This is yet another Nicks Secret super deal that combines pedigree, exceptional quality and a heavily discounted price to make it a must buy. From a producer renown for rich, full flavoured reds this is the real deal – you will receive the genuine article not an unknown brand, export label or cleanskin.
Whilst we can’t reveal its identity here are some clues:
It’s a well known wine that has featured prominently in our newsletters over the last 15 plus years
It’s from the same winery as the 2018 Nicks Secret McLaren Vale Shiraz & 2019 Secret McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon
Its label describes the nature of this offer perfectly
At just $12.99, this is truly unbeatable value.
Dense inky black heart with a deep dark red black hue. Gaining momentum as the wine sits in the glass blackberry and liquorice scents show good elevation with dark plum, vanillin cedar and subtle peppered fennel notes also chiming in. Rich, amply weighted and picking up a degree or two of opulence since our original tasting around 18 months ago, the plushly textured palate is layered with blackberry, liquorice and dark plum fruits. Subtlety smoked vanillin cedar, fennel and peppered earth characters lend a refined charm. Excellent power with very polished yet nicely built tannins providing a great framework. The aftertaste long, deeply fruited and peppery.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
