Blackjack wines describe the Chortle's Edge as their "Monday-to-Thursday wine"; a delightful, medium-bodied style for everyday drinking. The 2020 Blackjack Chortles Edge Shiraz is another Blackjack red wine that well and truly over delivers at its price point. Medium to brick red in colour and somewhat Bordeaux like in terms of structure and flavour profile. Elegant aromas of blackcurrant, tea leaf, cinnamon, nutmeg and spice are present on the nose.
The palate is long, savoury and silky smooth with plenty of fruit woven through quality oak that adds texture and weight. Although this wine is made for drinking in the short term, it will under appropriate conditions, benefit from cellaring for two to three years or more.
"A blend of shiraz sourced from the Blackjack vineyards and a nearby Harcourt vineyard. A consistent performer year in, year out, Chortle's Edge always delivers on price and quality. Solid dark red-crimson Bendigo hues. Equally, boasts a typical Bendigo warmth and a generous flavour profile rich in dark spice, licorice, blackberries, ripe plum, acacia and earth. Bound in fine, savoury tannins, it moves effortlessly through to a long finish. 89 Points. 14.5% alc. Drink: 2023 - 2027"- Jeni Port, winecompanion.com.au.
