Situated between the sea and the hills, on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula, the McLaren Vale wine region enjoys a moderate Mediterranean climate and rich diversity of soils. Highly regarded for traditional McLaren Vale varieties, Serafino produces Shiraz and Italian varieties which reflect the family’s Italian heritage.

This Cabernet Sauvignon is full of flavour, texture and complexity. The fruit is voluptuous and full with blackberry coco, ripe red jalapeno, plum and black olive characters, finishing with a fine bead of tannin and power enhanced by quality integrated oak. A varietal perfect wine.

A maritime cabernet. Full and transparent across a bead of regional salinity; convincingly varietal, too, across the graphite, currant and bay leaf notes. Best of all, though, are the tannins: compact and nourishing. Not overworked and hard. This is long and polished. A good drink to be aged with confidence and without unduly damaging your bank balance. Drink to: 2038; Price: $28.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

This label delivers some of the keenest cabernet value in the land, and the 2017 is among the best yet. Blackberry and tobacco aromas, with some tarry, inky bass notes. It’s bright, clean and varietal yet fully ripe, with charm and complexity. Medium to full-bodied and elegant, with smooth tannins. Drink: Now to 2032; Price: $28.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 94 Points & Wine of the Week; Huon Hooke; The Real Review

Ranked: #1 of 36 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon from South Australia; The Real Review

Emerging as one of the best-value cabernets on the market (very varietal but properly ripe and elegant) this one has blackberry and tobacco aromas with some inky, tarry bass notes and a bright, medium- to full-bodied palate, with balanced tannins. Price: A$28.00; Rating: 94 Points; Gourmet Traveller Wine
