Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 – Black Market Deal #39463
- Textured, savoury
- Adelaide Hills
An Adelaide Hills favourite of ours at the ‘fo., these guys have been producing wines since the early 90’s, and each year go from strength to strength, producing wines of consistent quality. In more recent years, they have taken a strong approach to sustainability, incorporating environmentally conscious practices into everything they do.
This cabernet is sourced from a single vineyard in the Adelaide Hills, grown on the producer’s estate. Whilst spending a period of time in oak, the wine developed notes of cedar and soft chalky tannins. The nose is a delightful bouquet of blackcurrants and choc-mint, with a delicate herbal note of bayleaf coming through. It’s bursting with blackberry and cassis, blueberries and is all tied together harmoniously.

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.
