Our Black Market - deals that give you exceptional value, only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand. 

Wines that are bona-fide, 100% the genuine article. You just don't know who they're made by until they turn up.

But we can tell you a few things. Important stuff like what they taste like, when they were made and what from. And also what they've been scored by critics too.

Here's five deals that are extra special - cellared to perfection and ready to go.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 – Black Market Deal #45566

95pt Halliday rated aged Coonawarra cabernet - the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. It's quite a joyful moment when we get our hands on aged cabernet, from a top producer in the world famous cabernet region of Coonawarra. What better wine to show with some age than a cabernet, after all? Halliday would certainly agree, awarding this wine 95pts in a recent tasting. Vibrant blackcurrant and oak have come together, tannins mellowed and earthy, secondary elements emerged. Unless you have a cellar full of aged wine, this is possibly the best chance to pick up some absolutely stunning aged cab for a stupidly good price.

Shiraz 2014 – Black Market Deal #49841

Highly awarded, and for good reason too. This wine - ten years young - is drinking beautifully. It feels a little backwards to say it, but aged wine has got to have something youthful about it to really hit the spot. This does that masterfully with a swirl of red and blue fruit at its core. That fruit is framed by leather, earth, tobacco, umami, chocolate, spice, herby green-ness, and so much more. Old and new. Big and pretty. Robust and stylish. This is a wine that walks the line; intricate and intriguing from start to finish. Most importantly, though: utterly delightful to sit and sip on. Bravo.

Grenache 2014 – Black Market Deal #49830

Stunning grenache from an icon of wine. A wine that has earned its stripes, and then some. It's not often you look at a ten year old bottle of grenache that sets tails wagging, but this certainly does. This wine is as romantic as the name sounds. Trust this top-tier McLaren Vale winery to make a long-lived, incredibly expressed bottle of grenache. Seriously, your eyes will roll back into your head when this lands at your doorstep. A bit of the old-school Vale handling of this one certainly set it up for its cellaring potential, but also offers a bold, spicy take on one of the region's best varieties. This is really cool booze, and we don't say that lightly.

Shiraz 2013 – Black Market Deal #49197

Iconic, age-worthy, and pristine. This is a boutique production where all the attention to detail is immediately apparent. Hand harvested, fermented and matured in partial new oak (around one third); everything here points to quality. Deep, black fruit sit atop vanilla and sweet pastry essence making for a wholly joyous and powerful drinking experience. Remarkable fresh, too, given its not insignificant stint in the cellar - with more years to go yet, should you choose to wait and see how this wine matures. For me, though, this is picture perfect as is, and it won't last long in my house.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 – Black Market Deal #49454

All the excellence of aged cab, none of the price tag. It's every bit as good as it seems: supple, aromatic, and finely tuned. South Australia’s Limestone Coast is not quite as famous as a few neighbouring regions, and as a result the value to be found there is staggering. Take this delicious cabernet from a rock solid mofo fave producer. At this price, get set for your mind to be blown. It’s got the trademark florality of your classic coonawarra cabs, although we’re talking more intense black forest fruits and pepper rather than your typical violets and berries. If you're anything like us, you'll be astounded at the value here.
