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

Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 – Black Market Deal #47941

Rarely do we see a wine that is so unanimously adored, from an elite producer at the top of their game. When it comes to aged cabernet our of Margaret River, this is truly raising the bar. The 2017 vintage had it's challenges, but this wine and this producer bucked the trend entirely. This is a masterfully crafted, elegant-yet-powerful (thanks to that slightly higher ABV), age worthy Cab. We can't get enough of it (literally, we bought everything we could get our hands on and it won't be enough). Varietal in all the right ways; long, herbed, a touch twiggy, a lot brambly. Where it steps outside the mould a little, though, is in the density of the fruit. It borrows somewhat from the powerful fruit profiles of Coonawarra, but it doesn't shed its Margaret River finesse in doing so.

Shiraz 2017 – Black Market Deal #44910

This tiny producer knows quality tenfold. A hundred-fold. A thousand-fold. Seriously, this is unbelievably good. When people talk about quintessential Barossa shiraz, this is what they’re thinking about. Ripe, jubey plums mingle with cocoa and sweet vanilla amidst supple tannins. The kind of wine that coats your palate and sticks around like a good friend. We’d say to save this one for special occasions, but realistically this will make any occasion special.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 - Black Market Deal #42004

Each glass of this cabernet is sure to be excellent and intriguing. After more than a decade in the cellar, the once boisterous tannins have now mellowed on the silky palate, and fruit is joined by herbaceous and somewhat meaty notes. There’s still classic cabernet cassis and blackberry, which is accompanied by rosemary, thyme and a long and savoury finish. This is outstanding wine, and will continue to serve you well for many, many years to come.

Shiraz 2018 – Black Market Deal #46997

This is what impressive tastes like. Genuinely deep and robust, blackberry and liquorice dance with vanilla and a pantry full of baking spices. Do us a favour and savour every drop, it's worthy of the attention. Aged Barossa shiraz: big, heavy, and bold. Something you can say about the wine and the package it comes in. Are we in any doubt anymore that Barossa is the true home of shiraz? Seriously, search the world over and you'll be hard pressed to find juice quite as impressive, quite as complex, and with quite as much history. Each wine that comes out of this prized region is worth holding tightly on to, but this. This right here. This is the stuff mofo. Our producers have been guarding this in their cellar, but they figured it was finally time to send it off to loving homes (ahem, that's us!).

Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 – Black Market Deal #43162

Rarely do you open wine when it’s in the perfect drinking window, but thankfully, we have one here for you. With almost a decade in the bottle, its tannins have softened to perfection. Robust and vibrant dark berries are still at the core, but the layers are opening up, offering roasted notes, cigar box, olive tapenade and mineral warmth. Cabernet sauvignon with perfectly aged, fine tannins is genuinely such a pleasure; it makes you wonder why we don’t always wait ten years. An outstanding cabernet, wow, this really over-delivers.
