Why do we love this wine?

This is a jaw-dropping value delight from a Vale winery many a mofo has fallen in love with. This wine is built for fun; its reason for being is to let the good times roll. A fifth of the grapes in this delicious cabernet were dried before pressing in the Italian appassimento style. Not all that common in a cabernet, but it certainly does the job! Think jubilant, ripe fruit flavours with plushness to spare. A solid sprinkling of tannin keeps the edges in check and dribble-inducing flavours of liquered Morello cherry and chocolate abound. Cabernet grapes never lack acidity, and this duly brings the goods. Yummy, fun stuff!

What is a Black Market deal?

Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article, absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
