Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 – Black Market Deal #38985
- Textured, savoury
I’m pretty sure it won’t take much convincing to get cabernet fans to order this wine. It’s from Coonawarra, SA’s best cab sav region. It’s got 98 points from Winestate. That’s an insane score, especially for the price! I suppose I can describe the wine a bit, but it almost seems like overkill. This is full bodied, quite rich, silky in texture and full of dark fruits indicative of the variety. There’s a bit of spice from French oak as well. I’m pretty confident this won’t stay in stock very long, so snatch some up while you still can.

Coonawarra is renowned for its cabernet. To write off other varieties, though, would be simplistic. Some of the best wine from the region is shiraz, which is frequently overlooked in the search for the perfect cab sav. It's riesling is a surprise dark horse, too. Not to belittle Coonawarra cab either, but it's funny how often we get caught insisting that one variety is the best expression of a specific place, grown in a variable environment with so many factors at play. All we're saying is: don't miss the great wines that aren't the usual suspects. Coonawarra has quite a few amazing hands other than their trump card.
