Expert Reviews

88 POINTS: James Halliday Wine Companion 2018 Edition - “A spicy sparkling shiraz of black pastilles flavours, tannin grip and sweet dosage”.

Todd Godbout, Wine Compass USA, June 2017 - “Produced using the Charmat method from 3-5 year old wine, this sparkling wine has been produced since 2005. There is plenty of body and lift where the fruit and the spices linger…. Great Value”

90 POINTS: JamesSuckling.com, June 2016 - “Lots of licorice and tea leaf with blackberry aromas. Full body, soft and lightly velvety sparkling red wine. Flavourful finish”.

90 POINTS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2016 - “A very likable wine, the lifted bouquet shows dark plum, raspberry coulis and floral characters with a hint of vanilla complexity. It is succulent and generous on the palate, and delivers excellent fruit richness backed by soft tannins. A fabulous sparkling shiraz, on the dry side, yet filled with sweet fruit flavours.”

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Utilising premium fruit from eminent wine regions in South Australia, The Black Chook struts affordable wines to be enjoyed and adored, shared and celebrated! Since first vintage in 2003, The Black Chook Shiraz has scored an uninterrupted run of 90+ points, internationally recognised reviews and enjoys great success in Australia, Canada and USA.

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.

As we scratched around for a name for the first Shiraz Viognier, an obviously interested black chook stopped in its unplanned tracks, lingering, as only chooks do, just long enough for the penny to drop. For its trouble, we immortalised that single Black Chook, rationalising that it had come from a small white egg; just as our dark, inky, black Shiraz had been transformed by a tiny amount of fragrant white Viognier.

CHOOK? IT’S AUSTRALIAN FOR CHICKEN!
