Sauvignon Blanc 2021 – Black Market Deal #38794
- Adelaide Hills
One sip of this and you’ll know you’re in for a wild ride. This is no normal ‘run-of-the-mill’ savvy bee. From a single vineyard in the heart of the Adelaide Hills and picked with care and deliberation, you have here a heightened grace and elegance often lacking in more entry level sauvignon blancs. Not tropical or grassy; rather, fresh and racy, generous, but zippy. Lemon zest and grapefruit pith abound and would perfectly complement a sun drenched balcony after a long and sweaty day outdoors. Notice how the wine will ‘flesh out’ once the chill is taken off the glass. A super little conversation starter.
What is a Black Market deal?
Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article – absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
“This small Hills producer make excellent wine - firm reds and textured whites - this is the best SB I’ve had in a while.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
