Shiraz Cabernet 2017 – Black Market Deal #35890
- Rich, full-bodied
- Clare Valley
Shiraz and cabernet sauvignon - the classic Aussie blend - from the climes of the Clare Valley come together to make a tasty drop that is absolutely ready to go! Made by a boutique producer, likely to be off many people’s radars, this wine may be the start of a long journey with their fantastic wines. Expect a bold and firm palate of dark fruits nestled into herbaceous notes and a nice amount of tannin. At three years old, the wine is in a great place and will be drinking well for a few more years to come.

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.
