Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 – Black Market Deal #35556
- Rich, full-bodied
We are not joking when we say that this producer is the OG of Victorian cabernet. They have been a leader for decades and are an icon in Central Victoria. It’s not every day that these true gems come about, but when they do - we get pumped!
2017 was a great vintage and this wine shows that perfectly ripe Cabernet fruit with a firm palate, integrated tannins and all the fruit generosity that you would want from the region. I’d call this wine plush, but not over the top, as it sit on the border of medium and full bodied. Oak plays a part, but doesn’t dominate the blackcurrant and mulberry notes. Get excited people, because if you snag a case of this cab - you’ll be as pumped as we are.
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.

- Serving Temp.
Bendigo is full of gold dust, and not just the mineral kind. The granite hills, warm days ensure that reds and robust whites ripen ideally here, and retain their delicate flavours in the cool, continental nights. Think Shiraz, Cabernet and Riesling and you're on the right track, with a bit more oomph than its slightly cooler neighbours, Avoca and Seymour.
The rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
