The name for our Blackmoor Icon Range is steeped in the winery’s history. Immediately following World War I, King George V granted the land to Captain Leslie Norman Ward, who had been awarded the Military Cross for gallantry during the conflict. While he became acquainted with the quality of the wine that was able to be produced in the Barossa Valley, he also had another passion for racehorses. In 1931, Captain Ward’s horse, Blackmoor, won the A.R.C. South Australian Grand National Hurdle Race. Winning on the line at 66/1 pounds, Blackmoor beat the favourite, an imported horse named Orcades at 2/1 pounds.

This wine is a tribute to those times and is a tremendous example of what Captain Ward learnt recognised so long ago – the supreme quality of wine that could be produced in the Barossa Valley.

  • Tasting Notes

    With a dominant aroma of blackcurrant, and complemented by delicious fig, Christmas cake, and blueberry fruit flavours, the 2018 Cimicky Blackmoor Shiraz delivers big on flavour. Underpinned by a deliciously luscious tannin structure, this wine has a sensationally sumptuous mouthfeel. This wine has excellent cellaring potential.
