Opi Sadler is the Trophy winning winemaker behind top sellers Waxed Bat and Opi Malbec. He set his three apprentice winemakers a challenge – to make the ultimate Black Red. No easy feat when you have Opi ‘the magician’ as your mentor. So they adopted the methods from Italy’s luxurious Amarone red. Cherry picking top quality parcels of Malbec and Shiraz, they air dried the grapes on straw mats for a few weeks after harvest, just like they do in Italy. Moisture slowly evaporates, leaving flavour even more concentrated. Luscious Malbec and premium spicy Shiraz, all cask aged for a few months, this is a whopping, rich red. It impressed the master magician and it’ll impress you too. Deep, dark and velvet smooth, it’s great with hearty stews.
