Cabernet Shiraz 2017 – Black Market Deal #34191
- Textured, savoury
- Clare Valley
The long cool growing season in Clare Valley works wonders with cabernet and shiraz. As the grapes slowly ripen, flavours and aromas develop and the result can be a pretty intriguing experience. This wine, from one of our fav Clare producers delivers just that - layers of spice, blackcurrant and plum on the nose - followed by even more on the palate. It’s robust and weighty, but has a touch of freshness from the shiraz adding jubey red fruits. Fruit, weight, tannin - it’s all there.

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.
