Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 – Black Market Deal #41768
- Rich, full-bodied
Sometimes we all get caught up in the buzz of the big Aussie wine regions, forgetting to put some focus on the hidden gems that are found on the roads between. The Victorian Pyrenees make some very serious styles, with their full, rich cabernets leading the focus. This producer goes beyond emulating the famed cabernets of the world, creating a uniquely beautiful wine that does justice to their 50+year old vines. The lifted aromatics of bell pepper, blackcurrant, and minty eucalypt are striking on the nose. There’s plenty of plush dark berries and spice to reinforce the body alongside the ample tannins you will find packed in each sip. A reminder of the heights cabernet can achieve, especially when you go out of your way to find it.
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.
“Our best winter warmer. This is a Moorish and rounded Cabernet that's beautifully balanced and loaded with spice and complexity.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
