Shiraz Cabernet 2019 – Black Market Deal #39917
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
Every vintage, this well-known Barossa producer takes their absolute best fruit to create this, their flagship wine. The 2019 edition, an almost even blend of shiraz and cabernet, has been produced in a style the winemaker describes as ‘a steel hand in a velvet glove’. It’s silky smooth, but with such a driving force behind it. Simply put, for lovers of big, bold Barossa reds, this has it all. The nose exhibits violets, olive tapenade and dark sweet fruits. There’s plum, blackcurrant, cedar and spice on the substantial palate, leading to a finish that just goes on and on. You couldn’t pack much more flavour and concentration into a wine than we have here. Liquid gold and full of muscle.

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
