1 4.5 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...

Savoury, spicy nose. Fruit is quite closed but there’s delicate, clean fruit in the background. Velvety palate – a muscular style with ripe, sweet fruit concentration that clearly needs time to unfurl.
