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...

Butler Crest, Margaret River 2010
Decanter average score: 17.75pts/20 (92/100pts)
Individual judges’ scores: RJ 18 PM 17 AR 18
Surprisingly complex, savoury nose – earthy with real character. Rich and long, lingering fruit, jumping out in delicate waves; blueberries and loganberries. Almost Bordelais in style albeit with a tad more power and sweetness of fruit.
