Cabernet Malbec 2018 – Black Market Deal #36072
- Medium bodied
- Clare Valley
This cab-malbec from the Clare shows off a deliciously drinkable, and dare I say fun side to the region. Clare is famous for their deep, dark-fruited and structured reds and while this wine has depth and structure - it also has juicy red berries, floral notes and total smashability. It’s from a producer who don’t take themselves too seriously, making a collection of young-at-heart, but very well-made wines. If you like your cabernet with a bit more richness and fruit power, which malbec certainly delivers, this could be the wine for you.

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
