PURE BLACK 2017
Who better to deliver a tasting note worthy of the Pure Black than Mary Hamilton herself:
"We knew that we had to create something spectacular but in total harmony with everything that had come before. Hugh’s experience from over 50 vintages of hot summers, droughts, wet winters, cool Southern Ocean breezes is distilled into Pure Black. Pure Black is the culmination of the Black Sheep story.
Pure Black signals our future direction. Over a decade went into creating this wine. While our style remains the same, it is crazy to imagine that we could have created this remarkable wine without a fresh perspective on our future. Pure Black has been a grand project behind the scenes for many years that has forced us to new levels of quality in the vineyards, in the winery, and in our heads. It has been a relentless drive for excellence.
Ultimately for this wine over 350 barrels of Shiraz were tasted. Of those only the very best made the grade. A unique wine needs a unique package, every element of the packaging is done by hand."
