Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 – Black Market Deal #39063
- Textured, savoury
- Clare Valley
Sourced from a vineyard in the Skilly Valley of the Clare, this cab sav is bright and fruit forward, with typical varietal flavours of blackcurrant and mint. A healthy dose of oak has added spice and vanilla as well. Clare reds aren’t as dense and dark as those of the Barossa, but they still pack a nice wallop without sacrificing any of the silkiness that has made the region a favourite of cab lovers.

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
