Shiraz Cabernet 2014 – Black Market Deal #34870
- Textured, savoury
Welcome to smooth town! This is powerful Padthaway shiraz and cabernet with soft red and purple fruits, complimented by a few years’ age and a touch of American oak. This wine is drinking at its prime and will reward you with many great winter drinking moments. It is in between medium and full-bodied, with bold plums and cherries and a quite savoury finish. I hate to use the term ‘winter warmer’ but it really is! Match with your choice of braise or Moussaka and you’ll feel toasty while you toast.

Padthaway is home to some of the most unique and groovy wines in South Australia. The region was given the 'all clear' by the CSIRO in 1944, vineyards were planed by Seppelt in 1964 (Not sure why it took them 20 years to get onboard) and these days has more than 4,000 hectares of vineyards planted. The main varieties to be grown are Shiraz, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Although these are the main players, the region's rich soil, underground water supply and Mediterranean climate allow for other varieties such as Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Pinot Noir to be grown.
