PRE-ARRIVAL: Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 – Black Market Deal #37965
- Textured, savoury
This producer is a favourite of ours here at the ‘fo, and you’ll understand why when it arrives. This vineyard is their most premium, located in near Penola, and is a site rich in history to the community and grows outstanding wine. The wine is rich, ripe and unctuous, with loads of black currants, vanilla, subtle bayleaf and cedar notes linger through. Lay this one down for a few extra years mofo, it won’t hurt.

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.
