Blackjack wines describe the Chortle's Edge as their "Monday-to-Thursday wine"; a delightful, medium-bodied style for everyday drinking. The 2019 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.
"This is a wine that pretty much always delivers the goods. It does again here. It’s a creamy, soft, inviting shiraz with plum and gum leaf flavours mixed through with peppercorn and vanilla. It’s not a huge wine but it has plenty of substance, not to mention mouthfeel, and boasts a neat, dry, well-framed pucker of tannin rippling through the finish. Nicely done. 91 Points Tasted: May21 14% alc. $24 Screwcap Drink: 2021 - 2026+"- Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
