Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 – Black Market Deal #37302
- Rich, full-bodied
Our favourite winery from Padthaway is back! And this time with a variety the region was made for. Padthaway, which is just north of Coonawarra, doesn’t bask in the limelight like its neighbour does. No, they prefer to lay low, and out of nowhere, knock your socks off with their wines. Classic cabernet sauvignon spiciness and tomato leaf hit you with a “hey, I’m here mofo”, but back it all up with moorish black forest fruits and dusty tannins to tie everything together.
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.

Padthaway is home to some of the most unique and groovy wines in South Australia. The region was given the 'all clear' by the CSIRO in 1944, vineyards were planed by Seppelt in 1964 (Not sure why it took them 20 years to get onboard) and these days has more than 4,000 hectares of vineyards planted. The main varieties to be grown are Shiraz, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Although these are the main players, the region's rich soil, underground water supply and Mediterranean climate allow for other varieties such as Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Pinot Noir to be grown.
