Cabernet 2016 – Black Market Deal #33990
- Rich, full-bodied
It’s a quest every winemaker sets out to achieve, balance. It ain’t easy either. A cohesion between every element from sweetness, acidity, tannin, aromatics, weight and length; and when it’s achieved, it certainly is something to be celebrated. This flagship cabernet from NSW’s unsung hero, Orange, holds within it a boldness of savoury flavours coupled with enough breadth and elegance where subtlety is still the key. You’ll notice a wide range of characteristics as you get through a couple of glasses so don’t be afraid to pop this in the decanter and watch it develop over the evening, or afternoon if a Sunday roast is on the cards. Which, by the way, would be the perfect pairing.
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.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Orange is high, cool and continental. It's ideal for Bordeaux varietals (Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc) and the like. They have enough sun and heat to reach ripeness, while having a respite during the cool nights, which help them retain acidity and aroma compounds. Orange you glad you decided to go ahead and try some wines from this fruity region?
