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...

Strong oak and a polished, slightly stewed fruit nose. A slightly salty, mineral character to the rhubarb and cherry fruit which has a natural Vibrancy. Extremely bright and juicy, lovely sweet fruit, long and lingering. Immensely classy stuff.
