Where once South Australia was the undisputed king of Australian Cabernet, in the past two decades, Western Australia has not only made significant ground in claiming that title but surely now made it its own. With a climate not dissimilar to that of Bordeaux the final piece of the jigsaw - price - now allows us to bring 95-97 Point rated wines at more than reasonable price. Not only does our StarDozen serve to highlight the exceptional quality and value here but also the remarkably consistently excellent recent vintages that Eastern Australia could only wish for.

Xanadu Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Another stunning statement of classic Margaret River Cabernet. Packed with all those black currant, plums and chocolate black olive characters you expect. Powerful it is but there’s polish and finesse here that stamps it as a wine of the highest class. Rating: 95 Points; Ray Jordan - Wine Guide

Vasse Felix Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Interesting, very interesting. The colour, the freshness of the aromas and flavours, the finely sculpted tannins and the overall harmony suggest 13.5% alcohol, not 14.5%. All this conjecture is, of course, irrelevant: it is the outcome that matters ? here a distillation of elegance. Drink by: 2028; Price: $45.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2015; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion

Singlefile Frankland River Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
How long do you have? This will outlive most of us I suspect. It’s firm, tannic, rich and controlled. It’s an A-class wine with a long term future. Graphite, blackcurrant, cocoa, bay and teams of dry-but-inconspicuous leaf matter. Long. Dry and structural. Balanced. An unstoppable cellarability, given appropriate storage. Rating: 95+ Points; Drink: 2020-2040+; Price: $37; Date Tasted: May 2016; Alcohol: 13.8%; Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front

Fraser Gallop Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
An estate-grown and bottled cabernet, including 7% petit verdot and 4% each of merlot and malbec. It has considerable attitude, with crisply detailed and framed flavours that progressively gain velocity as they move across the palate towards the emphatic, balanced, finish. Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; Drink by: 2042; Price: $42.00; Date Tasted: March 2012; Alcohol: 14%; James Halliday Wine Companion
