Cabernet Blend 2015 – Black Market Deal #38918
- Medium bodied
Thank you Coonawarra, you’ve done it again! Clear nights and a warm summer allowed the grapes to be concentrated deep with flavour and sparked an early April harvest. With a mix of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot, the grapes were fermented separately in stainless steel vessels before being transferred into French and American oak to mature for 20 months. Dark purple with a dense palate of spiced cherry and ripe blackcurrant, this wine is well balanced with toasted bread and sweet vanilla honey notes. Drink now or let it age in your cellar for a few years. A great wine to go in the collection!

Coonawarra is renowned for its cabernet. To write off other varieties, though, would be simplistic. Some of the best wine from the region is shiraz, which is frequently overlooked in the search for the perfect cab sav. It's riesling is a surprise dark horse, too. Not to belittle Coonawarra cab either, but it's funny how often we get caught insisting that one variety is the best expression of a specific place, grown in a variable environment with so many factors at play. All we're saying is: don't miss the great wines that aren't the usual suspects. Coonawarra has quite a few amazing hands other than their trump card.
