Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 – Black Market Deal #38687
- Rich, full-bodied
- Margaret River
Margaret River enjoys some of the most consistent vintage conditions in all of Australia (if not the world) and 2017 was no different. This single vineyard cabernet from a Five Red Star Halliday rated winery is rich, yet structured, with great complexity. You’ll find violet, cassis, cherry, mulberry and licorice, all supported by subtle oakiness and a surprising minerality. It’s like Margaret River always puts its best foot forward with cabernet. Lucky us!
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.

Margaret River is as elusive as it is beautiful, such that you really need to visit to truly grasp its haunting beauty. Über-premium Cabernet, Chardonnay and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends grow here. 'Margies' only produces 3% of the country's grapes, but commands over 20% of its premium wine market, and hasn't had an off vintage since 2006. You start to realise how often this region is overlooked when you can list brands like Leeuwin, Cape Mentelle, Vasse Felix, and Voyager, not to mention Cullen, Pierro, Moss Wood, and Deep Woods. It's safe to say that it's time for a revisit.
