Shiraz Pinot Noir is not as crazy and avant-garde as you may think, having been the trademark blend of many a great Australian red of the past. In fact, Steve Grimley says "if you could swab some of the famed Hunter Burgundies of the times before label integrity, you'd find that not much has really changed." Albeit in this instance he is being up front on the Black Flag bottle. And although Pinot Noir only makes up 3% of this blend it is bizarre how much it has a hold over the Shiraz. We think this is a truly engaging bottle of Aussie red.
