Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 – Black Market Deal #37427
- Rich, full-bodied
- Adelaide Hills
When in the right hands, cabernet from the Adelaide Hills can really hit the mark. We’ve got one here made by what we’d consider a household name in the wine world. You’ll undoubtedly know who it is when you receive this wine. And in terms of hitting the mark, it won best cab in the region in James Halliday’s Australian Cabernet Challenge. I’d say that’s a good indication. And regarding what’s in the bottle, you’ve got dark fruits like blackberry and cassis, wrapped up in some earthiness and fine tannin structure with hints of chocolate and mint. There’s some restraint there, making this quite the food wine but lovers of fruit-driven cab sav won’t be let down.

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
