1 4.6 5
An impressive tasting to say the least, with our judges seduced by Western elegance, particularly in the younger wines, as well as by savoury, mature Cabernets from South Australia. See the top 49 wines including 7 Outstanding Australian Cabernets here...

Defined nose, spice, vanilla oak and a slightly minty undertone. Intense, deep, penetrating, bloody wine – lovely texture and mouthfilling blackberry jam fruit ignites the taste buds with a touch of espresso hitting through. Will get better and better.
